Description:

This is a Java applet that simulates a tsunami from the initial wave pulse through contact with a coastline. Users may change the shape of the sea bottom near the coast and watch the effect on the approaching tsunami. The amplitude of the initial pulse is also adjustable by the user. This item is part of a larger collection of interactive java simulations on a wide range of topics in physics.
