Abstract

Tsunamis - the massive oceanic oscillations that commonly follow earthquakes and other major disturbances in the earth's crust - can cause severe coastal damage and loss of life. This article reviews the way in which they develop and current techniques for predicting their onset within the relatively short space of time needed to warn coastal areas at risk.
