The “Tsunami” exhibit focuses on the wave movements that arise from underwater earthquakes. It demonstrates how energy is released during an earthquake, how that energy propagates through the water, and ultimately leads to the formation of large and powerful waves known as tsunamis.

During an earthquake, the tectonic plates beneath the sea shift. This movement transfers energy from the earthquake to the water. The sudden displacement of large amounts of water creates massive waves. The speed and strength of these waves depend on the amount of energy transferred.

Tsunamis possess immense force, causing widespread destruction. To provide timely warnings for tsunamis and ensure everyone’s safety, research is conducted into their formation.

With this knowledge, engineers design buildings, bridges, and seawalls resilient to the forces of tsunamis.

How does a tsunami form?

  1. Move the lever back and forth.
  2. Observe the beginning of the wave.
  3. What do you notice about the water and the city?
