What causes a Tsunami?
Habitats, Food webs, and Biodiversity
To add on to my point, a Tsunami will effect the food web of the area it hit because the producers will wither or die because of the abundance of water or the lack of sunlight and space. The little of sunlight means no components for plants to undergo photosynthesis means no producers living. The primary consumers will run out of food, which then effects the secondary, tertiary, and any other type of consumers in the food chain or web in the ecosystem.
In addition to, the biodiversity of a area will be effected drastically. This is because the sustainability of a ecosystem will lower, which is caused by a number of species increasing or decreasing due to a catastrophic event changing the area. To clarify, if a species of organisms die or over-populate, another set of organisms will do the same; to make it short, it's a domino effect.
Tsunamis on the Atmosphere
Water from Tsunamis can knock down green-houses. Because of this, radiation can be released into the atmosphere resulting in death, birth-defects, or cancer.
Tsunamis sends sky waves into the atmosphere. Because of this, scientists will be able to tell and predict if the atmosphere is moist.
Tsunamis on the Surface
The impact from the waves uproots trees, habitats, and sometimes even homes. Because of this, landforms and the coastal areas can completely change.
After a Tsunami, water gets absorbed into the soil. Because of this, water from Tsunamis makes soil richer and full of nutrients that's beneficial for plants.
Tsunamis on the Water
During Tsunamis, harsh chemicals can be washed into the ocean. Because of this, marine life and nearby animals will die or become sick.
The water from Tsunamis are spread out into many different areas. Because of this, lakes and other dry places can absorb water and get back to providing a habitat. This also helps dry areas that are in drought.
