Tsunami! is a University of Washington website that has been developed to provide general information about tsunamis. Tsunamis are large water waves, typically generated by seismic activity, that have historically caused significant damage to coastal communities throughout the world. This site has been developed with a broad audience in mind; consequently, it contains extensive background information that is intended primarily for the general public, including information about the mechanisms of tsunami generation and propagation, the impact of tsunamis on humankind, and the Tsunami Warning System. This site also contains more detailed information about recent tsunami events that will be of interest to tsunami and interdisciplinary researchers.
