Earthquakes , volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions including detonations, landslides, glacier calvings , meteorite impacts and other disturbances above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami. Tsunami waves do not resemble normal undersea currents or sea waves because their wavelength is far longer. Although the impact of tsunamis is limited to coastal areas, their destructive power can be enormous, and they can affect entire ocean basins. The Indian Ocean tsunami was among the deadliest natural disasters in human history, with at least , people killed or missing in 14 countries bordering the Indian Ocean.
What are the Effects of Earthquakes?
The effects of a tsunami on a coastline can range from unnoticeable to devastating. The effects of a tsunami depend on the characteristics of the seismic event that generated the tsunami, the distance from its point of origin, its size magnitude and, at last, the configuration of the bathymetry that is the depth of water in oceans along the coast that the tsunami is approaching. Small tsunamis, non-destructive and undetectable without specialized equipment, happen almost every day as a result of minor earthquakes and other events. They are very often too far away from land or they are too small to have any effect when they hit the shore. When a small tsunami comes to the shoreline it is often seen as a strong and fast-moving tide. Tsunamis have long periods and can overcome obstacles such as gulfs, bays and islands.

Implications for megathrust earthquakes and tsunamis from seismic gaps south of Java Indonesia
It was an undersea megathrust earthquake that registered a magnitude of 9. The earthquake was caused by a rupture along the fault between the Burma Plate and the Indian Plate. Communities along the surrounding coasts of the Indian Ocean were severely affected, and the tsunamis killed an estimated , people in 14 countries, making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history. The direct results caused major disruptions to living conditions and commerce in coastal provinces of surrounded countries, including Aceh Indonesia , Sri Lanka , Tamil Nadu India and Khao Lak Thailand. Banda Aceh reported the largest number of deaths. The earthquake was the third-largest ever recorded and had the longest duration of faulting ever observed, between eight and ten minutes. The Indian Ocean earthquake was initially documented as having a moment magnitude of 8.

2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami
The tsunami that affected the coasts of the Indian ocean on December 26, claimed close to lives, mainly on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, which suffered overwhelming devastation. This article asks whether a tsunami warning system is needed in the Indian Ocean, where the probability of experiencing a similar catastrophe is very small. In addition, other alternatives, including land use planning and education focused on tsunami risk management, are presented. Their application could considerably reduce financial and human losses if a disaster of this nature was to occur again.
Tsunamis are caused by violent seafloor movement associated with earthquakes, landslides, lava entering the sea, seamount collapse, or meteorite impact. The most common cause is earthquakes. See the percentages on the right for the geological events that cause tsunamis. A disturbance that displaces a large water mass from its equilibrium position can cause a tsunami. In order to understand the role of violent seafloor movement as a major cause of tsunamis, one needs to understand plate tectonics.
Tsunami of , caused by a 9. However, less reported, albeit real, is its impact in the islands of the Indian Ocean more than 1, miles away from its epicenter. This is the first peer-reviewed paper on the tsunami events specifically in the eleven nations bordering the Indian Ocean, as they constitute a region at risk, due to the presence of tectonic interactive plate, absence of a tsunami warning system in the Indian Ocean, and lack established communication network providing timely information to that region.

Tsunamis pp Cite as. In order to utilize coastal forest as tsunami countermeasures, quantitative evaluation for hydrodynamic effect of coastal forest and the clarification of prevention functions against tsunamis were examined in this paper. Field survey and review and summary on the control forest conditions were carried out to evaluate the effect of coastal forest and to find the condition of coastal forest. A relation between the forest density and the diameter of trunk is obtained through the field survey of control forest and some previous researches, which is useful information for the evaluation of the tsunami reduction effects. Numerical simulation including the control forest effect is performed for evaluating the quantitative effect for tsunami reduction and damage. It is found that an increase of forest width can reduce not only inundation depth but also current and hydraulic force behind the coastal forest. By using these results, effects of reducing tsunamis can be quantitatively evaluated in a relation to the tsunami and forest conditions.
