This essay covers about Tsunami, being one of the fatal natural disasters that have attacked many countries, endangering the human lives. This essay will cover on what tsunami is, how and why it happens, and the severe consequences and the measures taken to prevent it.
1. Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning “Harbor water”. Tsunami is in most cases the result of sea-bed earthquake. The latest tsunami was the largest of its type since the magnitude Good Friday earthquake of Alaska in 1964. It took a...
Reducing the impacts of a tsunami
A tsunami is a huge wave caused by earthquakes deep in the sea. We need to reduce the impacts as it kills many innocent people, destroys land and property and destroys buildings. Tsunamis also separate families from each other.

Tsunami: The Harbor Wave
A Tsunami is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large water volume of a body of water, usually an ocean, but also can happen around deep large lakes. The waves progressively get bigger, the largest wave usually being one in the middle. Tsunami...
To conclude our report from the understandable of Tsunami happens in Malaysia, there is lot of memorable and sadness when the boxing day. Seven years after Tsunami, while the human dimensions of the tragedy will take much longer to heal the country has made major steps towards recovering...

This paper will discuss the physics and warning systems of tsunamis, a destructive wave force that researchers have been studying for many years. Tsunamis are...
Tsunamis are series of gigantic waves caused by earthquakes. When an earthquake happens the energy created travels to the surface of the water and a huge wave forms due to the pressure. The size of the wave depends on the depth of the water, the force of the earthquake, and the wind. Then the wave, called...

TSUNAMIS BECOME DISASTERS BECAUSE OF THE HUMAN CONTEXT IN WHICH THEY OCCUR.
DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT?
USE EXAMPLES OF KNOWN TSUNAMI EVENTS RECENTLY AND IN THE PAST TO ILLUSTRATE YOUR ARGUMENT.

A Case Study on Tsunami Damage in India
A natural disaster is the effect of a natural hazard that affects the environment, and leads to financial, environmental and/or human losses.
A tsunami is a large ocean wave that is caused by sudden movement on the ocean floor. This sudden movement causes vertical displacement of the water. It could be caused by an earthquake, a volcanic eruption, and underwater landslide or the impact of the meteorites. The impact of a large meteorite...
NASA VOYAGER: 'TSUNAMI WAVE' STILL FLIES THROUGH INTERSTELLAR SPACE
The Voyager 1 spacecraft has experienced three shock waves. The most recent shock wave, first observed in February 2014, still appears to be going on. One wave, previously reported, helped researchers determine that Voyager 1 had...
A tsunami us a large wave caused by a displacement of a large volume of water. A tsunami are the effect of a natural primary hazards meaning that they are a secondary hazard, mostly the result of tectonic activity. The Boxing Day tsunami was caused by the subduction of the indo-Australian plate boundary...
Thesis: Tsunamis are caused by strong earthquakes beneath the seafloor
“A stone that drops into a pond sends out a widening of ripples, in the same way an earthquake under the sea creates a series of waves that can travel for many thousands of miles” (Langley 12). These waves are very long and wide...
Tsunamis have the same impacts on MEDC’s and LEDC’s.
As seen on Boxing Day 2004, just off the west coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, and in March 2011, just off the eastern coast of Japan, earthquakes can have devastating consequences, as can the tsunamis that followed.

A tsunami is a series of very long ocean waves created when a large body of water is
displaced. There are many places in Japan that have been hit by a Tsunami and they
are mainly caused by earthquakes...
dangerous of oceanic waves is called tsunami or tidal waves. It’s wave could reach up to thousands of feet tall. 3)Tsunami is word originated from japan, and it’s equivalent in English is called “seismic sea waves.” There are many factors causing Tsunami.

Why does a Tsunami happen?
The word tsunami comes from the Japanese language. The word means harbor (tsu津) and wave ( nami津). A tsunami is a series of waves that is generated because of a disturbance in the sea. As the waves get closer to shallow water and the shore they grow in size, destroying...
What is a Tsunami?
Tsunamis are giant waves caused by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions under the sea. When tsunamis are in the deep parts of the ocean tsunami their height does not change very much. But as the waves travels inland, they keep increasing in height as the depth...
