Artists concept of a growing Tsunami.
Tsunamis are long water waves of small steepness generated by impulsive geophysical events on the ocean floor or at the coastline. Since 1992 tsunamis in Nicaragua, Indonesia, Japan, and Russia have caused millions of dollars in damages and killed many thousands of people. Wave runup is the most devastating hazard associated with tsunamis, yet it is the least understood.
