Title: Once and Future Tsunamis
Url: http://wimedialab.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.watcyc....
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: Long before the devastating December 2004 Indian Ocean event, tsunamis had already been implicated in the widespread death and destruction in Java and Sumatra following the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa. Tsunamis are also blamed for the collapse of the ancient Minoan civilization on Crete. These waves are capable of overrunning almost any coastline in the world and exacting a serious toll on both property and life. This interactive world map lets users explore key tsunamis dating from 3.5 billion years ago, along with a hypothetical future event that might take place in the Atlantic Ocean near the Canary Islands.
