Recent experimental findings have enabled a closer approximation of the helical magma model .

Observational evidence indicates :
1.There are only two magma helices , with axes at about negative 63 degrees to spinward .
2.Fairly recent axes are at 15 degrees west South to 125 degrees west North and at the antipodes of 180 degrees .
3. Plumes of magma are at places where the spirals are closest to the surface , and break through . There are numerous ones .
4 Anomalies :
On Latitude 20 North and 50 South there were large magma breakthroughs . Remember , these drive the crusts . Pangea , etc ? Note the Continental concentrations .
What this mean ?
Do not confuse simple tectonic unzipping with magma plumes .
The three 8+ quakes in 2004 in the South-East of Australia were magma plume quakes . These destabilized the plates to the north , leading to the plate quakes at Indonesia and Japan .
Latitude transmission :
Slower , but expect major tectonic and tsunami effects at 50 South ,105 West .
Tsunami warnings (Middle of the Pacific) for Chile . Big ones .
The hotspot to the east of Madagaskar ( about 62 East , 23 South) will really get zapped , as well as coast lines .
If the Southern Hemisphere is really unlucky , there can be a major plume at 50 South , 12 West (south of Tristan da Cunha) . Two hundred meter plus tsunamis on the South African coast can be expected .
I told you to get off planet .
