Research the history of tsunamis and post information about major tsunamis in recent history.

Tsunamis occur most frequently in the Pacific Ocean, but are a global phenomenon. They are possible wherever large bodies of water are found, including inland lakes, where they can be caused by landslides. Very small tsunamis, non-destructive and undetectable without specialized equipment, occur frequently as a result of minor earthquakes and other events.

 

Respond to the following:

  • Research the history of tsunamis and post information about major tsunamis in recent history.
  • Discuss the occurrence of one specific tsunami along with notable facts such as date, location, causes, damages, or other interesting information.

Remember, if you provide a quote or information from a source (e.g., your textbook or the Internet), you must include the correct citation and reference in APA style. It needs to be at a minimum 150 words.
