Understanding tsunami physics

from Andrew Zimmerman Jones

The science of the Japan earthquake is at once straight-forward and complex. One great resource for learning how a tsunami works is the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research, which has a lot of detailed information on the subject (including this graphic of the energy levels associated with the earthquake and how they spread out from the quake's epicenter). The NOAA Center for Tsunami Research has a page specifically dedicated to the Honshu event, which features a link to a great (and terrifying) animated video showing the movement of the waves throughout the Pacific Ocean. more
