        Savage Earth | Waves of Destruction: Tsunamis

        Though it's true that tsunamis are ocean waves, calling them by the same name as the ordinary wind-driven variety is a bit like referring to firecrackers and atomic warheads both as "explosives." Savage Earth explores the science behind volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. From the legendary fury of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. to the devastating convulsion of Kobe, Japan, in 1994, this series tells the stories of these great natural disasters, the scientists who struggle to understand and predict them, and the people whose lives are forever changed by their merciless force.
