The Cause and Effects of Tsunami A tsunami is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, typically an ocean or a large lake. The effects of tsunami will bring a lot of problem to the nation and community. The effects of tsunami will bring a lot of problem to the nation and community .The general cause of tsunami is earthquakes and it will makes environmental impact and destruction. Firstly,the main cause of tsunami is from the effect of earthquakes.Tsunami, also called seismic sea waves or, incorrectly, tidal waves, generally are caused by earthquakes. Earthquakes can brings volcanic eruptions following to produce a truly awesome tsunami waves .For example ,the Great Kratatau Volcanic Eruption of 1883 generated giant waves reaching heights of 125 feet above sea-level, killing thousands of people and wiping out numerous coastal villages .Actually not all earthquakes generate tsunamis. To generate tsunamis, earthquakes must occur underneath or near the ocean, and must be large . Tsunami can happened in everywhere in the world , but in the Pacific Ocean there is a much more frequent occurrence of large because of the many large earthquakes along the margins of the Pacific Ocean. On the other hand,the effect of tsunami is it will brings environmental impact.Tsunami will destroy all the living things and then brings unbalanced of environment. The up root of trees and plants will destroys animal habitats. Land animals are killed by drowning and the sea animals are killed and poisoned by pollution if dangerous chemicals are broken and washed away into the sea .Besides, the solid waste and disaster debris also be a part of critical problem that have to face by government .Contamination of soil and water will affect the soil fertility of agricultural lands .For example, it may happened radiation resulting from damage to nuclear plants as it happened in Japan in March 2011.It will require a big cost
Mistakenly called "tidal wave" the word tsunami is a Japanese word meaning, "harbor wave". A tsunami is a series of traveling ocean waves of extremely long length generated by disturbances associated primarily with earthquakes occurring below or near the ocean floor. Tsunamis are primarily the result of a vertical displacement of water and rank high on the scale of natural disasters.
Since 1850, tsunamis have been responsible for the loss of over 440,000 lives and billions of dollars….
` 1) Oceanic waves mean the forward movements of the ocean’s water caused by oscillation of water particles by frictional drag of wind over the Earth’s surface. It can be caused by the movement of Earth’s crust aka an earthquake. Like every wave, oceanic waves have highest and lowest points. The peak of thewave is called crest while the lowest point is called trough. The wavelength is the horizontal distance between two troughs or crests.
2)The Largest and most dangerous of oceanic waves….

A tsunami (plural: tsunamis or tsunami; from Japanese: 津波, lit. "harbor wave"; English pronunciation: /suːˈnɑːmi/ soo-nah-mee or /tsuːˈnɑːmi/ tsoo-nah-mee), also called a tsunami wave train, and at one time referred to as a tidal wave, is a series….
Tsunamis, also called seismic sea waves, are giant waves that sometimes crash through cities near the ocean. They are generally caused by earthquakes. I have done further research to dig deeper on subject about the power of a tsunami.
To generate tsunamis, earthquakes must occur under or near the ocean, and has to be large and create movements in the sea floor. Anyone close to the ocean can experience a tsunami, but in the Pacific Ocean there is a much more frequent occurrence of large, destructive….

Up until December of 2004, the phenomena of tsunami was not on the minds of most of the world's population. That changed on the morning of December 24, 2004 when an earthquake of moment magnitude 9.1 occurred along the oceanic trench off the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. This large earthquake resulted in vertical displacement of the sea floor and generated a tsunami that….
1. Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning “Harbor water”. Tsunami is in most cases the result of sea-bed earthquake. The latest tsunami was the largest of its type since the magnitude Good Friday earthquake of Alaska in 1964. It took a death toll of about 200,000 people and immense property. Since last 100 years, this has been the greatest disaster that the Asian region suffered. It measured 8.9 in the Richter scale and generated a gigantic tidal surge….

The cause, in my opinion, of this phenomenon must be sought in the earthquake. At the point where its shock has been the most violent the sea is driven back, and suddenly recoiling with….
