What is a tsunami and how it forms.


Hello Anonymous,
What a question! I hope you're in no danger from a tsunami because that's definitely something you don't want to tangle with. Tsunamis are caused (usually) by an underwater earthquake, eruption or some other anomaly. They in turn create waves that are truly killers. Remember the tsunami of several years ago? Scores of people vanished and were never heard from again. A word of caution, however. If you do find yourself in a tsunami, go inland immediately, and please bear this in mind; if you think the first wave is bad, subsequent waves are even worse. You're better off on land than on the ocean during a tsunami. Tsunami waves can travel very fast, upwards of 300-400 miles per hour so you can't outrun them. Hope this answered your question.

When do tsunamis happen


Tsunamis happen when there is an underwater earthquake, causing the ocean floor to move violently up or down. When the ocean floor moves like that, the water above it has to go somewhere so it spreads out in a very fast wave. The wave is a tsunamis.

How is a tsunami formed


It doesn't. In deep water a tsunami isn't even a big wave. A boat can go right over one without even noticing it. The problem is when the tsunami hits shallow water.

Unlike normal waves which are only on the surface, a tsunami goes all the way to the bottom. So what happens when a miles (or kilometers) high wall of water hits the shallower seabed near a shore? It piles up. Not miles high, of course, since the water crumbles, but still rather high. And with the forward momentum it just keeps piling up and driving forward.

The speed of tsunami is 600 m/hr.Then the distance is 2000 m along the shore and the time is 10.What is the time that the tsunami arrived?


This sounds like a trick to start with so, if that is the case the Tsunami arrived at 10:00. But if you are looking for a start time that the Tsunami first hit the shore line (if the shore is parallel to the movement) ? Divide 2000 by 600. which equals 3.33 or converted into hours/ minutes is, 03:19:80 hours which is how long it took the Tsunami to move the 2000m or almost 1/3 rd the distance every hour. Subtract 3.33 hours from 10:00 which equals 6.67 you have to now convert the .67 tenths into minutes which equals .67 tenths of an hour or 67% of 60 as in minutes. So now we multiply .67 times 60 which equals 40.2 So the time arrival would be 06:40:20 minutes. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Wat r the safer construction practices against tsunami


Mitigation measures for risks associated with geohazards can broadly be classified in six categories: (1) land use plans, (2) enforcement of building codes and good construction practice, (3) early warning systems, (4) construction of physical protection barriers, (5) network of escape routes and "safe" places and (6) community preparedness and awareness building.
Early warning systems and construction of physical protection barriers have been singled out as specific tasks in the proposed ICG research. Together with the other four categories, they form the backdrop for a mitigation strategy.
The results of hazard and risk mapping and analyses will be used to formulate mitigation strategies to assist decision-making on the need and cost-benefit of hazard mitigation works. Based on such a strategy, protection measures can be developed and their cost-effectiveness and environmental soundness compared.

A mitigation strategy would involve: (1) identification of possible disaster triggering scenarios, and the associated hazard level; (2) analysis of possible consequences for the different scenarios; (3) assessment of possible measures to reduce and/or eliminate the potential consequences of the danger; (4) recommendation of specific remedial measure and if relevant reconstruction and rehabilitation plans; and (5) transfer of knowledge and communication with authorities and society. The strategy developed by ICG and NGI for the tsunami-affected areas of Thailand after the 26th December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami provides a good example of what can be done.
Any mitigation strategy needs to be adapted for different natural hazards and different parts of the world. Especially for developing countries, it is vital to establish and promote proper land-use planning and construction practices to regulate human activities that increase risk to earthquakes, landslides or tsunamis and to prevent settlement of communities in high-risk areas.

Physical protection measures include, but are not limited to, integrated land use planning, drainage, erosion protection, vegetation and ground improvement techniques, barriers (earth ramparts, artificial elevated land, anchoring systems, retaining structures), and offshore or onshore walls to reduce the energy or the loads induced by geohazards (e.g. landslide, rock slide, tsunami, floods).
Buildings need to be designed (and placed in locations) to withstand the impact forces of geohazards and to provide safe dwellings for people. Land can also be elevated to ensure that buildings are above a critical height, for example to protect against tsunami danger.

Causes of Tsunami


Tsunami is a Japanese word meaning ''huge wave'' that refers to a series of large ocean waves. It is caused basically due to underwater earthquake, Richter magnitude exceeding 7.5 to produce a destructive tsunami.


Concept can be summarized as follow:


The earth is constantly moving on large tectonic plates. When these tectonic plates moves past each other, collide and/or slide under one another an earthquake results. This is what happened with the recent tsunami that devastated Southern Asia. A massive earthquake in the Indian Ocean measuring 10.0 on the Richter scale jolted the seabed causing the sudden displacement of a very large volume of water. The earthquake temporarily produces a fluctuation in the mean sea level of a specified area. Waves quickly form as the displaced water tries to recapture equilibrium by filling the vacuum that was created. Tsunamis are a series of extremely long waves that are created after a large volume of water is displaced. The amount displaced must be significant enough to create waves underwater in the vast ocean. Waves are formed as the displaced water mass moves under the influence of gravity to regain its equilibrium. The larger the displacement, the larger the wave generated.
