Abstract
On December 26, 2004, a tremendous seaquake up to grade 8.6 happened at the sea floor under the Pacific Ocean in southwest Sumatra Island, Indonesia, producing tsunamis to cause a series of serious hazards to 13 countries and regions in south Asia and around the Pacific Ocean. After the seaquake, through processing and analysis to the MODIS remote sensing image data, four kinds of strange remote sensing information with special characteristics and shapes were discovered, which are specifically the yellow island shore margin, seawater ring structure, sea-cloud ring and the sharp-horn-cloud in the sea-land area close to the epicenter. The study shows that the strange remote sensing information has much more significance than the original images themselves, thus helping understand more about the tremendous natural hazard through our analysis and interpretation.
