Anatomy of a Tsunami

While tsunamis can neither be prevented nor precisely predicted, people educated about particular warning signs can save their own lives and the lives of others. Learn more about tsunamis and what you can do to survive one on WHOI’s Interactive Tsunami Guide. (Animation by Jack Cook, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
