Tsunami

(Japanese for "Harbour Wave"). A series of huge ocean waves caused by a rapid, large-scale disturbance of the sea water, such as a major earthquake beneath the seabed that causes large vertical movements. In deep water, Tsunami waves are less than a metre high, but they can travel at speeds exceeding 800 kilometres per hour and can easily cross an ...

Tsunami

A giant wave set in motion by a large earthquake under or near the ocean that causes the ocean floor to shift vertically.These waves may reach enormous dimensions and have sufficient energy to travel across entire oceans. They proceed as ordinary gravity waves with a period between 15 and 60 minutes. Tsunamis steepen and increase in height on appro...

Tsunami

A tsunami is a series of very long wavelength ocean waves caused by the sudden displacement of water by earthquakes, landslides, or submarine slumps. Ordinarily, tsunamis are produced only by earthquakes exceeding magnitude 7.5. In the open ocean, tsunami waves travel at speeds of 600-800 kilometers/hour, but their wave heights are usually only a f...

Tsunami

A tsunami or tidal wave as they are popularly known, is a seismic sea wave originating from any one of several submarine geological phenomena, such as volcanic explosions or earthquakes. They travel in the open ocean at speeds up to 640 kmh. On Boxing Day 2004, (the 26th December 2004) an earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter Scale occurred under...
