Megatsunami deposits also occur on the eastern side of Lord Howe Island in the middle of the Tasman Sea, implying a source crater further east, which is towards the Mahuika crater.
The largest historical earthquakes on record have produced a maximum tsunami range of 40 to 60 meters (131-196 feet). has suggested that a bolide impact, including the collision of a large meteorite, asteroid, comet, or other celestial object, would explain both the geological and anthropological evidence better than an earthquake.
Hewlett-Packard will apparently need close to two months to start fulfilling backorders for the (temporarily) revived Touch Pad tablet."It will take 6-8 weeks to build enough HP Touch Pads to meet our current commitments, during which time your order will then ship from this stock with free ground shipping," read an email sent to customers and reprinted in a Sept. "You will receive a shipping notification with a tracking number once your order has shipped."That would place the new Touch Pads in consumers' hands sometime in either late October or early November.
The reduced-price devices are not returnable, according to the email.
A "larger installed base of Touch Pad and web OS devices should increase the value of web OS in a potential sale," Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu wrote in a research note widely circulated on Barron's and other financial Websites.The New Zealand tsunami expert Dr James Goff disagrees with the claims and says there is no evidence that an impact event occurred so recently.The discovery of the Mahuika crater remains a controversial subject.In modern times, geology is used for mineral and hydrocarbon exploration and for evaluating water resources.The discipline helps scientists understand natural hazards and recurring environmental problems.
