Tsunamis are triggered by earthquakes or underwater landslides and can travel rapidly across even the largest bodies of water. Protecting humans living along the coast requires accurate prediction of the expected arrival of the wave (among other factors). In this lesson, students will determine the length of time for the arrival of a wave from a given point.
Using simple math and geography skills students will determine how long it will take for a tsunami to arrive at a given point on a coast.Tsunami: The Long Journey
