Tsunami

En tsunami er en serie havbølger som flytter seg over ekstremt lang avstand (rundt 200 km). De er hovedsakelig forårsaket av jordskjelv under eller nær havbunnen. De kan også utløses av vulkanske utbrudd, jordskred fra land og på havbunn, eller av meteoritter. Tsunamier er sjeldne, og de kan forårsake store skader når de treffer kysten.
