Summary/Abstract: Terra is an active planet. There are a lot of movements in the atmosphere, lithosphere and in the depths of the planet. But, recently, disasters have intensified. The Tohoku earthquake is the largest seism in the known history of the Japanese archipelago. It was followed by a devastating tsunami that destroyed more than 200 km of the Japanese coast. But, the most dramatic effect of this catastrophic event is the serious damage of the nuclear plant in Fukushima. Therefore, there are three categories of security threats over the Japanese archipelago, to the environment, to the safety of people and against the planet as: the effects of the earthquake and tsunami; the radioactive contamination; the effects on Earth’s geography and geophysics. They must be known and treated accordingly.
