  • Tsunami Formation


Tectonic plates

Tectonic plates

  • The crust of our planet is cracked into seven large and many other smaller slabs of rock called plates

  • Plates Move ,collideforming

    • Deep ocean trenches

    • Mountains

    • Volcanoes

    • Earthquakes.


Tectonic plates1

Tectonic plates…


Wave formation

Wave formation

  • An earthquake occurs when two tectonic plates crash into each other and one plate slips under the other under the Deep Ocean

  • Water level rises above sea level

  • Gravity causes the water to spread into a wave that travels at an incredible speed and with amazing power.

Tsunami formation

Tsunami formation

  • The waves get bigger as it gets closer to shoreline

  • When it hits shallow water the huge wave travels more slowly

  • The water from the shore moves into the ocean, and then the massive wave crashes into the shore and keeps traveling inland
