Title: Natural Hazards- Tsunami:Threat from the Waves
Authors: Datta, Sukanya
Issue Date: Mar-2010
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Although the oldest record of ocean waves unleashing destruction and devastation following a massive earthquake, dates back to 326 BC when the Macedonian fleet of Alexander the Great was destroyed near the Indus delta/Kutch region, it would perhaps not be wrong to say that most Indians became aware of the terrifying consequences of a tsunami on 26 December 2004 when the Indian coastline was struck by another one. Since then, the word tsunami has entered the vocabulary of the common man, although perhaps the details of what “exactly” is a tsunami is not clear to all.
