Causes of Tsunamis and Earthquakes

The Earth's Restless Crust -Explore how the movement of tectonic plates beneath Earth's surface sets the stage for both tsunamis and earthquakes.

Subduction Zones: The Catalysts -Discover how subduction zones, where one tectonic plate slides beneath another, trigger powerful earthquakes and potentially devastating tsunamis.

Undersea Earthquakes Unleashed- Learn about the link between undersea earthquakes, caused by sudden plate movements, and the massive waves that follow—tsunamis.

Volcanic Eruptions and Tremors -Explore how volcanic activity can lead to seismic events, from minor tremors to volcanic tsunamis, altering coastlines and ocean floors.

The Wrath of Faults-Delve into the role of geological faults—fractures in the Earth's crust—in causing earthquakes of varying magnitudes and subsequent tsunamis.

Landslides: A Ripple Effect -Discover how underwater landslides, triggered by seismic events or volcanic eruptions, generate tsunamis capable of traveling across entire ocean basins.

Human-Induced Quakes and Waves- Learn about the unsettling connection between human activities like mining, reservoir-induced seismicity, and the potential for inducing tsunamis and earthquakes.

Preparedness and Mitigation- Explore the importance of earthquake-resistant infrastructure, early warning systems, and community education to mitigate the impact of these natural disasters.
