Japan Tsunami Wave
This dataset is a model put together by the Pacific Marine
Environmental Laboratory that simulates the waves of the December
26, 2004 tsunami the first thirty-six hours after it

Tracking Marine Debris from 2011 Tsunami
The 2011 Tohuku East Japan earthquake and resulting tsunami caused
a variety of failures at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
which resulted in radioactive emissions to the atmosphere. The
earthquake occurred on March 11th at 14:26 Japan Standard Time
(JST), the tsunami about one hour later at 15:41, and by 16:36 a
nuclear emergency was reported. By the early morning hours of March
12th, radioactive emissions were occurring from the plant.
NOAA Tsunami Website
A tsunami is a series of ocean waves generated by sudden
displacements in the sea floor, landslides, or volcanic activity.
In the deep ocean, the tsunami wave may only be a few inches high.
The tsunami wave may come gently ashore or may increase in height
to become a fast moving wall of turbulent water several meters
NOAA has primary responsibility for providing tsunami warnings to
the Nation, and a leadership role in tsunami observations and

Top 10 Historical
This historical dataset highlights the locations
of the top ten recorded earthquakes, with additional smaller
earthquakes as well. The top ten earthquakes are in yellow text,
and all the others are in red text. Each bullseye represents an
earthquake, with the size of the bullseye proportional to the
magnitude of the earthquake.
