What was the effect on the earth's rotation of the 2004 Indian Ocean
Earthquake and the resulting tsunamis? How is the length of our day affected,
and for how long will this continue? I ask this because I saw a comment by
Dr. Enzo Boschi of the Italian National Geophysics Institute, who said the
whole earth was vibrating and the quake even affected the earth's rotation.
