The recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan remind us of our own vulnerability along our coastline. The Pacific Rim generates the largest number of tsunamis. At this course we will discuss the causes of earthquakes and tsunamis, the characteristics of the wave and its travel time. We will look at some historic tsunamis, the tsunami warning system and our own potential vulnerabilities.
