Surge of a Tsunami

An up-close look at a powerful force...

Tsunamis are large ocean waves usually caused by an underwater earthquake or a volcanic explosion. They differ from tidal waves, which are caused by the forces of the Moon, Sun and other planets, and the wind as it moves over water.

Step up to the control wheel and start to turn as you see how movements under the water can result in BIG impacts above water.
