Meica Rogue waves and tsunamis have two things in common, they both come from water, and they are destructive.The topics are rogue waves, tsunamis, and the difference. Rogue waves and tsunamis are caused in the water but are in different part of the ocean. Tsunamis are formed in the Pacific Ocean and rogue waves are formed in the Indian Ocean. Rough waves are an open water phenomenon, in which winds, currents, nonlinear phenomena cause a wave to briefly form that is far larger than the "average" large occurring wave of that time and place. rogue waves can form in large bodies of freshwater as well as the ocean.The first rogue wave confirmed with scientific evidence,it has a maximum height of 25.6 metres (84 ft).rogue waves can also reach up to about 30 meters or 100 feet high. A rogue wave estimated at 18.3 meters (60 feet) in the Gulf Stream off of Charleston, S.C. At the time, surface winds …show more content…
Tsunamis can go the same speed as a jetliner and that massive wave can out run the fastest runner. When there is a lot of waves at once, or the water goes back that is a sign that a tsunami is coming. If that tsunami is far then people need to get to the tallest and strongest building there is in the city that way they are safe and helicopter can pick them up. Tsunamis can wipe out an entire city or 1/4 of the country. Tsunamis can last up to an hour, or more. They are very dangerous. Tsunamis and rogue waves are have more difference than similar. Tsunamis last longer than rogue waves do, rogue waves last until it hits something, tsunamis on the other hand last for an hour or more. They formed in different parts of the ocean, like Indian Ocean is where tsunamis form and Atlantic Ocean where rogue waves form. Tsunamis can kill 230,000–280,000 people and rogue waves kill very little people. The only similarity they have is they are destructive and they’re formed in
... It would be the first of its kind in the United States, but Japan has about a dozen of them for the past 15 years. My family will be heading to the beach next week for Spring Break, I will most definitely find out where the evacuation site is for Manzanita, our house is directly across from the ocean so if a tsunami hits we would be in its direct path, and I don’t think the European sea grass covered sand dunes will hold off the wave that would be coming ashore. There are signs all over the city, and we have been going to Manzanita for over 15 years, our family has never talked about who to do, we don’t know where to go and we don’t have an emergency supply stored in case of any emergencies. I truly believe that the city has to educate their residents and run practices, like fire drills for schools.
In the article “A Tsunami, Where?” (2015). On June 2013 a storm have hit the East Coast in the U.S that results in tsunami. Over 30 tide gauges have reported similar tsunami conditions. The highest capacity was recorded in Newport located in Rhode Island. In addition, Conditions showed a conceivable torrent, even to the individuals who did not have the guide of the tide gages. Brian Coen was spearfishing at Barnegat Inlet in Ocean County, New Jersey he saw a solid outrush of water as the tide went out. Outrush conveyed jumpers over submerged rocks that serve as a barrier, the strong waves carried the three drivers but only two were harmed. However, Ebersole reviewed that before long, the current switched at the same pace. A close-by gage recorded
Out of all the natural disasters that we talk about in class, the most deadly would have to be a Tsunami. Compared to earthquakes, Tsunamis have cause more deaths since 1945. A Tsunami is likely to strike anywhere on the west coast, including Santa Cruz in California – United States – North America – 36:58:24N 122:02:09W. A Tsunami is a giant “wave” of water that is caused by a sudden shift in the sea floor. The wave is a result of the water attempting to regain its equilibrium, which is driven by gravity. The size of the wave is determined by how much the sea floor is moved vertically, and how quickly it shifts. A greater water depth helps as well. They can travel up to five hundred miles an hour and have wave heights of one hundred feet. Earthquakes are the leading cause of Tsunamis. People who live in California are well aware of earthquakes that are frequently caused by the San Andreas Fault. However, not many are aware of the results of earthquakes that occur out in the Pacific Ocean. Tsunamis have also been referred to in the past as seismic sea waves, but Earthquakes aren’t the only cause of this phenomenon. Landslides, nuclear explosions, volcanic eruptions, and extra terrestrial impacts also have great water displacement results.
The first strong tidal wave hits already weakened cities, destroying almost everything in its path, but despite the immediate destruction, floods that can last for weeks after the initial wave continue to devastate infected areas. An example of tsunamis that affected the United States are the ones that hit after an earthquake called Good Friday Earthquake on March 27, 1964. Different tsunamis struck Alaska, British Columbia, California, and coastal Pacific Northwest towns, killing 121 people with waves up to 100 feet tall. Volcanoes are typically a mountain or hill having a crater or vent through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapor, and gas erupt from the earth's crust. One example of a recent volcanic eruption of Kilauea, a volcano located on the Southeast coast of Hawaii, which erupted May 3rd. Document 2, called Lava Burns More Homes on Hawaii's Big Island as new Fissures Form, written by Amy Wang and posted on the Washington Post on May 7th, 2018, tells us about the eruption, going into great detail about the events and damage of the eruption; but it fails to indicate us about how human populations that were living in the area were
According to: - www.dpi.state.wi.us/standards/sciglos.html When looking at the different types of hazards to injure or kill people, or costing the most economic price, we consider such hazards as tsunamis and earthquakes. Recently, In December’s tsunami in the Indian Ocean, an estimated 250,000-300,000 people were killed or are still missing, while millions of lives have been upturned, socially and economically, by its impact. A main reason for the huge... ... middle of paper ... ...
Unlike a tsunami being a giant wave that sinks a piece of land, a flood is a temporary overflow of water on usually dry land. Floods can come from heavy rain, storm surges, waterway block and many more. They can occur in a slow pace, taking days, or happen at an instant, becoming a flash flood (Flood).
The Wave was an experiment conducted by Ben Ross to teach his students about life in Nazi, Germany in the 1940’s. If that person were already a wave member their job was to recruit new people in, so as a way to get other kids to join the recruiters would bully, and force other kids into joining; in a sense it was like hazing, being forced to do what you don’t want to do. Another reason was because these students really didn’t have much information about Ben Ross their teacher and so it lead people following a leader blindly, which is a very bad thing. Being on the unsuccessful side of this argument this is why the wave was bad (card stacking). The Wave was a complete failure.
The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami took place on December 26th, 2004 and had a magnitude of 9.15. The cause of the Sumatra Tsunami was due to the sliding of two tectonic plates. Sumatra, an island in Indonesia, is situated on the boundary of the two plates; part of Sumatra is situated on the India/Australian plate and the other part is on the Eurasian plate. The Indian/Australian plate and Eurasian plate connect on the ocean floor at the boundary, a little over 100 miles off the short of Sumatra. Sumatra was one among the many countries that was impacted by these natural disasters. To fully understand the Sumatra Tsunami one must examine the events that led up to it, what a tsunami is, and the damage caused.
Surface current are found in the upper four hundred meters (400m) and makes up about ten percent (10%) of ocean (Briney, n.d.). Surface ocean currents are as a result of friction between the water and atmosphere interface. The wind exerts a force or stress to the ocean surface and causes the water to move. The winds that most affect the oceans’ currents are the Westerlies which produce belts of ocean currents that flow east in the mid-latitude and the Trade winds which generate currents that flow to the west in tropical latitudes. These winds are mainly a result of warm air from the tropics moving towards the poles. The direction of the current is not the same as the direction of the wind but it is deflected at a forty five degree angle. This deflection is resulted from the earth’s rotation on its axis called the Coriolis force/ effect. Coriolis force and constrains by continental land masses cause surface currents to develop into an alm...
While the early warning saved thousands of people, the Japan’s Meteorological Agency underestimated this earthquake as the subduction zone of Japan should not produce the magnitude 9.0 quake (Oskin, 2013a). The Tohoku Earthquake and its tsunami approximately killed 16 thousand people, injured 6 thousand people and around 3 thousand people were missing. Most people died from drowning. Around 300 thousand buildings, 4000 roads, 78 bridges, and many more were affected by the earthquake, tsunami, and fires from leaking oils and gas. Electricity, telecommunication, and railways were severely damaged. The debris of 25 million tons was generated and carried out to the sea by water (BBC News, 2012). The country’s authorities estimated more than 309 billion US dollars of damages. Landslides occurred in Miyagi and liquefaction in Chiba, Tokyo, Odaiba, and Urayasu (USGS, 2013). Furthermore, the tsunami destroyed protective tsunami seawalls. Approximately 217 square miles of Japan covered in water (Oskin,
Miskien op ‘n ander manier dit se(raak ontslae van al die “of”s) ?The consequences of tsunamis are the death of thousands of people, destroying of homes, and the destruction of any man made equipment that gets in the way of the tsunami (Norman and Whitfield, 2006). No one can stop tsunamis happening. However, the effects of a tsunami can be reduced by making shorelines less vulnerable (Rothery, 2007).
On March 11, 2011 at 2:46 PM, Japanese time, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hits, but was later upgraded to a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, happens 231 miles northeast of Tokyo, Japan, at a depth of 15.2 miles. The pacific tsunami-warning centre sends out a warning to the Pacific Ocean from Japan all the way to The United States of America. Around an hour later after the earthquake the waves hit. The waves got up to 30ft high when they hit the Japanese coast. The waves caused widespread devastation washing away cars like they were sticks, collapsing buildings and destroying roads and highways.
