Simulate a Tsunami, 9-12
The PBS NOVA features two interactive web sites that will help students understand the tsunami that took place in 2004 and the recent Japanese tsunami.: Anatomy of a Tsunami and Once and Future Tsunamis.
In Anatomy of a Tsunami, students can follow the tsunami from its birth at the seafloor to its devastating collision with coasts around the Indian Ocean. In Once and Future Tsunamis, students can explore key tsunamis dating from 3.5 billion years ago through possible future events, and discover what experts have learned and continue to learn from studying them.
