New Zealand and United States Conducted Secret Tsunami

Tests done off the coast of New Zealand during second world war to
design a Tsunami Bomb that could destroy coastal cities
The United States and New Zealand conducted a series of tests during the second World War
called a Tsunami Bomb.
The principle behind the Tsunami Bomb was to create a series of explosives in the ocean floor,
just off the coast that would trigger Tsunami like waves.
These waves could grow to be over 33 feet high and could destroy small coastal cities.
The tests were carried out in waters around New Caledonia and Auckland during the
Second World War and showed that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10
large offshore blasts could potentially create a 33-foot tsunami capable of inundating
a small city.
The project was designed as a possible alternative to the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan.
Tsunami Bomb testing was code-named “Project Seal”
The Tsunami Bomb testing was given a code name – “Project Seal.”
The top secret operation, code-named “Project Seal”, tested the doomsday device as
a possible rival to the nuclear bomb. About 3,700 bombs were exploded during the
tests, first in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, near Auckland.
New Zealand author and f ilm maker, Ray Waru came to discover the plans f or
the Tsunami Bomb while doing research
Ray Waru came across the plans in the national archives that carried the military files while doing
“Presumably if the atomic bomb had not worked as well as it did, we might have been
tsunami-ing people,” said Mr Waru.
Another interesting point brought up by Mr. Waru is not only that the idea for the Tsunami Bomb
was conceived, but that New Zealand had come far in the development of the project that it
would have worked.
The project was eventually shelved in 1945, but testing continued into the 1950′s.
One single charge would not have been enough to start a Tsunami Bomb, but a series of charges
consisting of about 2 million kilograms of explosives, spread in a line about 5 miles from shore,
would be effective enough to work.
Blasting off the coast to clear reefs was how the idea of Tsunami Bomb
technology was conceived
The project was launched in June 1944 after a US naval officer, E A Gibson, noticed
that blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes
produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a “tsunami bomb”.
Truly amazing how a discovery like this one was found….

Personal Not e:
I find history fascinating. And I have never heard of a Tsunami Bomb before today.
One thing that amazes me is how creative the human mind is.
To even comprehend, shaping mother nature, to channel a wave as a weapon is fascinating.
I am not sure that the Tsunami Bomb would have been more destructive or less destructive than
the atomic bombs that ultimately ended the war….
But to think that this is coming to light now, makes you wonder what other secrets are out there
that may be discovered one day.
Another thing I find fascinating is blogging and making money, while I do it.
I just followed the ’3 simple steps’ outlined in this video and….
….you too, can get paid, to blog about a Tsunami Bomb.
