Title: Wave of the Future
Url: http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.watcyc.wavefut...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Tsunamis are the result of processes that shape the Earth's surface: earthquakes, volcanic events, and landslides. People cannot control the dynamic forces that drive tectonic events; however, they can reduce the number of lives lost to tsunamis by using technology to assess hazards, develop warning systems, and educate the public. This report discusses what it will take to implement an effective tsunami warning system so that the casualties and damage inflicted by the December 26, 2004 tsunami will not be experienced again.
