brian atwaterThe American Museum of Natural History Bulletin has a great series of feature articles on the latest tsunami research that includes interactive multimedia files and essays on how tsunami reseachers are trying to get ahead of the next big wave. This video provides an overview of the feature, complete with interviews of scientists including Vasily Titov, who created the first animated model of the Sumatra tsunami that was shown by major news outlets all over the world. Watch how a subduction zone earthquake creates a tsunami like the Sumatra earthquake and tsunami that hit the Indian Ocean in 2004. The essays cover computer modeling approaches, high-tech buoy monitoring systems, and research in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S., which shows that a major tsunami hit the coast near the Cascadia subduction zone only 300 years ago.
