This site features information about tsunamis and tsunami research at the Institute of Ocean Sciences (IOS) of Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans. There is introductory information on tsunamis and what they are, accounts of some historically significant events, and a discussion of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, the likely source for earthquakes and tsunamis in coastal British Columbia. The homepage provides contact information for IOS personnel and a list of recent publications in downloadable format (PDF). The data page provides access to archived and real-time data from moored instruments, satellites, lighthouses, buoys, and other sources. The research page features links to projects grouped by topic (the Arctic, coastal oceanography, the open ocean, and others). There is also an extensive list of older publications (1994-2006), some of which are downloadable, and links to news items and event announcements.
