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.

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...

Thesis: Tsunamis are caused by strong earthquakes beneath the seafloor
