Tsunamis

GeoHazard

Tsunami

A long high sea wave caused by an earthquake, submarine landslide, or other disturbance. Affects humans by destroying buildings, homes, and pretty much everything in its way. Tsunamis carry debris in its strong current while it floods and can drown humans.

Regions and measuring

The pacific coast is most vulnerable to tsunamis. Even if the Pacific coasts are particularly susceptible to tsunamis, all regions of the world may be affected by destructive tsunamis.Tsunamis are measured by tide gauges, satellites, or the DART system. They use this technology to predict a tsunami and to see how bad it will be.
