Learning From Dolphins How To Warn People About Tsunamis (EvoLogics)
As already know, tsunamis are very dangerous and hard to detect. However, dolphins are helping us be able to detect tsunamis. Dolphins are able to receive several frequencies of pressure waves from 15 miles away. A company named EvoLogics created underwater electronics which copy communication between dolphins that help us with tsunami warnings.
