Caption: Tsunami simulation. Three-dimensional computer simulation image of a giant sea wave (tsunami), 60 seconds after its creation by a landslide in the Taggia canyon off the coast of San Remo, Italy. Land is green, the sea surface is blue, the canyon sides are brown & the landslide area is white. The tsunami is the ripples on the flat sea surface. Sediment movement during landslides can vertically displace large amounts of water and so create a tsunami. This simulation forms part of the international Genesis and Impact of Tsunamis on European Coasts (GITEC) project to assess the effects of possible tsunamis in the near future.
