Abstract:

Caused by earthquakes deep beneath the seabed or by landslides crashing down into the sea from a cliff or mountain, tsunamis have been wreaking havoc for millennia. Most of them occur along what is known as the Ring of Fire, a 30,000 mile-long arc of seismic activity encircling the Pacific Ocean. The tsunami that resulted in one of the world's greatest-ever natural disasters, took place in the Indian Ocean. On 26 December 2004, a massive undersea earthquake took place off the coast of Indonesia. This set off a series of tsunamis, which fanned out across the Indian Ocean, hitting around a dozen countries. Known as the Boxing Day Tsunami, it resulted in about 250,000 deaths and created havoc and destruction on an unprecedented scale. There is nothing that can be done to prevent a tsunami, but improved warning systems give scientists a better idea where and when they will strike.
