Investigating The Geology & Impacts of Recent Tsunamis
In the discussion below, we will explore two case studies. The first is the Sumatran tsunami from 2004, which we will use to explore the geologic origin of tsunamis, how tsunamis are generated within the water column, how they travel, and the impacts that they have on shorelines. The second case study will spend time exploring the most recent large-scale tsunami and associated impacts in Japan. Please click the first case study below or in the menu to get started.
