    Tsunamis and seabed rises are prime examples of the upward component of the forces during earthquakes, when matters are squeezed upward to make room at the horizontal level (1-3). The self-rotation of the Earth as well as the obliquity or axial inclination of the earth self-rotation axis propels plate drift. The faster acceleration of smaller masses or/and the slower decelerations of larger masses, triggered by solar and lunar pulls give rise to geophysical phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanoes, desserts and hot springs (4-7). The lava of volcanoes on the earth and the sun and stars was caused by the blocked electron movements in highly compressed spaces resulted from gravity since electrons spin at immense speed.
