Comment on this resource
Tsunamis are the result of processes that shape the Earth's surface: earthquakes, volcanic events, and landslides. People cannot control the dynamic forces that drive tectonic events; however, they can reduce the number of lives lost to tsunamis by using technology to assess hazards, develop warning systems, and educate the public. This report discusses what it will take to implement an effective ... Full description.

On the Pacific Northwest an oceanic tectonic plate (Juan de Fuca) is being pulled and driven (subducted) beneath the North American continental plate. Earthquakes generated along that fault may produce local tsunamis. Local tsunamis are those generated by earthquakes near the coast. This site provides links to external webpages describing the physics behind a tsunami. Resources featured in the links ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
Long before the devastating December 2004 Indian Ocean event, tsunamis had already been implicated in the widespread death and destruction in Java and Sumatra following the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa. Tsunamis are also blamed for the collapse of the ancient Minoan civilization on Crete. These waves are capable of overrunning almost any coastline in the world and exacting a serious toll on both property ... Full description.

On December 26th, 2004, an earthquake off the coast of Sumatra shook the Indian Ocean, sending a series of destructive tsunamis toward the coasts of 11 countries that border the ocean basin. In this lesson, students will gain understanding about the nature and causes of tsunamis, confronting this tragedy in a productive and practical way. They will observe a demonstration of wave propagation in a ... Full description.

In this lesson students discover how ocean waves form and the effect of extreme storms on wave formation. They will investigate the "Portland Gale" of 1898, the Halloween Nor'easter of 1991 (known as "The Perfect Storm"), and discuss hybrid storms and tsunamis. This hands-on activity uses on-line data resources and includes: focus questions, learning objectives, teaching time, audio/visual materials ... Full description.

This interactive feature lets younger students create an ocean wave and determine its height. They can set wind speed, fetch, and duration and observe the wave they have created as it rocks a simulated ship. Pop-up features explain the types of waves, terms associated with wave morphology (crest, trough, wavelength, and others), and the Beaufort Scale for measuring wind speed. Full description.

The Savage Earth website is the on-line companion to the PBS television series of the same name. This site tells the stories of several great natural disasters, particularly the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. that destroyed Pompeii and the 1994 earthquake in Kobe, Japan. It contains articles on the earth's crust and plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis. Each article features ... Full description.
