Description

We cannot prevent tsunamis, but we can try to minimize their impact on humans. This interesting book examines what scientists know about tsunamis, how we can predict them, and how we learn from each event. By studying the destruction they cause, scientists and engineers continue to come up with new and improved technologies to predict catastrophic waves and better protect cities, buildings, and people. Case studies and brief bios of key scientists and organizations highlight the information.
