Transcript of Tsunami
What is a Tsunami ?
A huge wave that is caused by a earthquake or other disturbances to the sea floor.
How does a Tsunami occur ?
A Tsunami occurs when there's a sudden change beneath the sea for example when an earthquake occurs on the sea floor.
Where do Tsunamis happen.
What happens to the environment after a Tsunami occurs ?
A Tsunami doesn't do much damage to the earths surface but it does do alot of damage to man made things like houses, bridges, electricity towers, buildings, light poles etc.
How is a Tsunami measured
A Tsunami is measured at sea with Tsunami buoys that see the changes in the water levels. These measurements help the scientists predict when the next Tsunami will hit the shore.
Tsunamis occur most often in the Pacific Ocean because the Pacific Rim bordering the Ocean has a large number of active submarine earthquake zones.
How do scientists predict Tsunamis ?
Scientists can predict when the Tsunami comes to shore by looking at the underwater earthquake that precedes it.
