The first mention of a tsunami can be found in the chronicles of 8000 years ago. The Greek historian Thucydides (born about 460 BC) first proposed that a giant wave is a consequence of the earthquake is. In ancient times, the seismic activity in Europe was much higher than now, and thus the tsunami were not considered anything out of the ordinary.

In the Middle Ages the giant waves, no, no and reminded myself to residents of the Old World. It is known that in 1540 a tsunami struck the Venice (killed about a thousand people). A November 1,

Japan again threatens tsunami

Japan again threatens tsunami Natural disasters

March 13, 2012 on the north-eastern coast of Japan, an earthquake measuring 6.8. Since strong aftershocks continued, the National Weather Service warned residents of coastal prefectures of Aomori and Iwate, and the central and eastern part of the island of Hokkaido about a possible tsunami, but the warning was soon canceled.

September 28, 2013. Scientists from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research of New Zealand warned that the nation's capital, the city of Wellington, in the event of an earthquake with magnitude of at least 7 threatens massive tsunami.

Tremors of such force to cause a massive landslide in the canyon, which is located at the bottom of the Cook Strait, 10 km from the coastal areas of the city. Derailment of land just can cause a wave that hit the capital in 12 minutes after the earthquake.

Geologist Joshu Mountjoy indicates that about one in every 100

Why do some earthquakes cause tsunamis and others do not?

Why do some earthquakes cause tsunamis and others do not? It is interesting

Magnitude 9 earthquake off the coast of Sumatra on 26 December 2004 caused a powerful tsunami, which took place around the Indian Ocean. March 11, 2011 in the east of the Japanese island of Honshu, an earthquake measuring 8.9, provoked a tsunami 10 meters high. U.S. National Weather Service warned of the danger of over 50 countries and territories within the Pacific Ocean. In particular, the tsunami waves have left their mark in the Hawaiian Islands. So why do some earthquakes cause tsunamis and others do not?

Earthquake in Chile has affected two million people

Two million people in one way or another been affected by the powerful earthquake that struck in central Chile on Saturday, said the country's president, Michelle Bachelet.

According to recent reports, at least 300 people killed in a powerful earthquake in Chile that began at dawn on February 27.

Aftershocks of magnitude 8.8 triggered a tsunami in the Pacific. At the same time, the wave height was not as dangerous as predicted.

"The element has dealt a heavy blow to our country — said in a televised speech President Bachelet. — And she again tests our ability to

In Nizhny Novgorod may arise landslides, storms and even tsunamis

May 31, 2013. Experts say that in Nizhny Novgorod may experience landslides, hurricanes, and even tsunamis. I remember the recent earthquake in the Far East, the echoes of which felt even Nizhny Novgorod. Scary if our city natural disasters, understood channel "First City".

It turns out that the tsunami has already occurred in the Nizhny Novgorod in the XVI century. His reason was the landslide at the Monastery of the Caves. Prior to 1597 the monastery was in a different place, but the landslide was completely destroyed. From the collapse of the soil in the Volga River formed

Debris after the March tsunami soon reached the island of Hawaii

Debris after the March tsunami soon reached the island of Hawaii Natural Disasters

The wreckage and debris washed into the sea tsunami following the March earthquake in Japan have increased by several million tons of the total amount of garbage in the Pacific Ocean. According to preliminary estimates the debris should reach the coast of California in 2013, but the first encounter with the U.S. territories will be much sooner. Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration U.S. claim that partially submerged wreckage came close to the north-west coast of Hawaii in the winter 2011-2012.

Immediately after the earthquake

Especially in shallow water by the tsunami explained

October 1. Scientists from the University of Colorado at Boulder have used mathematical methods to the characteristics of the waves appearing in the shallow water before the tsunami, and found that their characteristics depend on what kind of force wave will cover the island.

Total found two distinct types of waves — X-shaped and U-shaped, so called because of the form that takes water mass.

Through his research in the natural environment, the scientists saw that the conventional direct waves in the interaction form a different type of waves, X-or Y-type. Thus, if closer to the coast during the
