Killer Tsunamis

Chance has it that I had this activity in store when the earthquake in Japan hit.

We are all kind of in a shock after watching the pictures of the devastating effects of the worst-ever earthquake in Japan.

This three-minute National Geograpic video will help us understand the way tsunamis form and why they have such damaging effects.

Self-study activity:
No activity this time. Watch the clip and try to understand as much as possible. Then check whatever you understood against the transcript here.

As a follow-up try to explain tsunamis in your own words, without reading the transcript.
