Caption

Tsunami formation. Computer artwork of the formation of a tsunami following an underwater earthquake at a subduction zone. The vertical movement of the seabed displaces water upwards and downwards, creating waves (left). These waves move rapidly (hundreds of kilometres an hour) in the open sea. As the waves near the shore the water recedes from the coast (far right) as the slowing waves bunch up in shallow coastal areas. Towering tens of metres above the original sea level a large mass of water crashes ashore as a tsunami, causing immense damage and destruction.
