This exhibit shows the dynamics of a Tsunami.
Since December 2004 the idea of a Tsunami has become very real. A Tsunami is started by a large underseas landslide or earthquake, and can cause horrendous devastation. It is therefore important that we understand more about its origins, so that we can be more prepared next time a Tsunami occurs.
