Caption: Tsunami 2004. Computer simulation of wave height during the Asian tsunami. On 26 December 2004 an underwater earthquake along northern Sumatra (far right) caused a massive movement of water throughout the Indian Ocean. The maximum height of the tsunami waves from 0 metres (white) to 5 metres (dark pink) is shown in this computer simulation over 15 hours after the earthquake. The tsunami was the most devastating in recorded history, with over 200,000 people killed. Coastlines affected by the tsunami include: East Africa (left), Thailand (upper right), India (top centre) and Sri Lanka (below India).
