What is a tsunami ? What causes a tsunami ? Where do tsunamis occur ?

Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning ‘harbor wave’. It is constituted with two syllables, Japanese language meaning harbour ("tsu", 津) and wave ("nami", 波).

Tsunami is a wave train or series of waves generated, by impulsive disturbance that vertically displaces the water column, in water body. Earthquake, landslides, volcanic eruption, explosion and even the impact of cosmic bodies like meteorites commonly generate tsunami. Tsunami savagely attacks coastlines causing devastating property damage and loss of lives.

Tsunami "Wave Train"

Many people have the mistaken belief that tsunamis are single waves. They are not. Instead tsunamis are "wave trains" consisting of multiple waves. The chart below is a tidal gauge record from Onagawa, Japan beginning at the time of the 1960 Chile earthquake. Time is plotted along the horizontal axis and water level is plotted on the vertical axis. Note the normal rise and fall of the ocean surface, caused by tides, during the early part of this record. Then recorded are a few waves a little larger than normal followed by several much larger waves. In many tsunami events the shoreline is pounded by repeated large waves.

What is a tsunami ? What causes a tsunami ? Where do tsunamis occur ?

  • Tsunami can be generated when the see floor abruptly deforms and vertically displaces the overlying water.
  • Tectonic earthquakes are a particular kind of earthquake that are associated with the earth’s crustal deformation, when these earthquakes occur beneath the see, the water above the deformed area is displayed from its equilibrium position.
  • Waves are formed as the displaced water mass, which acts under the influence of gravity, attempts to regain its equilibrium

WHAT CAUSE?

What is a tsunami ? What causes a tsunami ? Where do tsunamis occur ?

  • Ocean waves are normally divided into 3 groups, characterized by depth:
  • • Deep water
  • • Intermediate water
  • • Shallow water
  • Even though a tsunami is generated in deep water (around 4000 m below mean sea level), tsunami waves are considered shallow-water waves. As the tsunami wave approaches the shallow waters of shore, its time period remains the same, but its wavelength decreases rapidly, thus causing the water to pile up to form tremendous crests, in an effect known as "shoaling".

WHAT CAUSE?

What is a tsunami ? What causes a tsunami ? Where do tsunamis occur ?

Subduction Zones are Potential Tsunami Locations

WHAT CAUSE?

Most tsunamis are caused by earthquakes generated in a

subduction zone, an area where an oceanic plate is being

forced down into the mantle by plate tectonic forces. The

friction between the subducting plate and the overriding

plate is enormous. This friction prevents a slow and steady

rate of subduction and instead the two plates become

"stuck".

Accumulated Seismic Energy

WHAT CAUSE?

As the stuck plate continues to descend into the mantle

the motion causes a slow distortion of the overriding plage.

The result is an accumulation of energy very similar to the

energy stored in a compressed spring. Energy can

accumulate in the overriding plate over a long period of

time - decades or even centuries.

Earthquake Causes Tsunami

WHAT CAUSE?

Energy accumulates in the overriding plate until it exceeds

the frictional forces between the two stuck plates. When

this happens, the overriding plate snaps back into an

unrestrained position. This sudden motion is the cause of

the tsunami - because it gives an enormous shove to the

overlying water. At the same time, inland areas of the

overriding plate are suddenly lowered.

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.

Japan is a nation with the most recorded tsunamis in the

world. The earliest recorded disaster being that of the 684 A.D.

Tsunami is one of the earth’s disaster. It was a Japanese word

meaning “harbor wave,” used as the scientific term for a class

of abnormal sea wave that can cause catastrophic damage when

it hits a coastline.

Tsunamis can be generated by an undersea earthquake,

an undersea landslide, the eruption of an undersea volcano,

or by the force of an asteroid crashing into the ocean.
