Newbie here. I hope you will not mind a geoscience question as opposed to a rock question. Regarding the uplift that caused the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia and elsewhere: How fast did the actual uplift occur? The animations make one think it was almost violently instantaneous , but I'm thinking that it had to be more like the speed with which an old person gets out of their chair. Either way, the water gets moved; it's just a question of how violently.
I think that's a darn good question. Someone else will have to answer.
