Alaska Tsunami

Discover why multiple tsunamis resulted from the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964 in this video adapted from Alaska Sea Grant. Hear firsthand accounts about the tsunamis and see an animation showing how tsunamis are created when there is a sudden displacement of water, caused by a change in elevation of the seafloor or by landslides. Observe how tsunamis impact coastal communities, and learn how research is critical for community preparedness.

This media asset was adapted from "Ocean Fury: Tsunamis in Alaska" by Alaska Sea Grant.
