  Savage Earth: Waves of Destruction
The Japanese characters for tsunami mean "harbor wave," and many people commonly refer to them as tidal waves, but in reality tsunamis have little to do with tides.
Though wind-driven waves and swells are confined to a shallow layer near the ocean surface, a tsunami extends thousands of feet deep into the ocean.
This sometimes draws the curious to the shoreline and to their deaths, since the withdrawing of the sea is inevitably followed by the arrival of the crest of a tsunami wave.

A bore may also be formed when a tsunami wave enters a river channel, and may travel upstream penetrating to a greater distance inland than the general inundation.
Local or near-field tsunami has a very short travel time (30 minutes or less), mid-field or regional tsunami waves have travel times on the order of 30 minutes to 2 hours.
However, most tsunamis (initially) give the appearance of a fast-rising tide or fast-ebbing as they approach shore and only rarely as a near-vertical wall of water.

There were several boats in the bay when it occurred, two boats were lost and a father and son on one boat lived and actually were picked up, rode the face and said were riding over the tops of the trees.
When a tsunami occurs by earthquake like the one in southeast asia, the wave height is limited by the upward shift in the techtonic plates, which they say only can move upward about 30 ft in the most powerful earthquake.
I saw that show and I am almost positive that they said the tsunami was over a 1000 feet high, not 450 ft. Another show I saw on national geographic said that there was a tsunami in Alaska caused by a landslide in a bay that was over 1,000 ft high.

 The Observer | UK News | We Scots are still recovering from our industrial tsunami
But these days, Cosgrove concluded as he surveyed the devastation inflicted on some of the world's poorest countries by the tsunami, the one thing Scots really excel at is telling the world how poverty-stricken and deprived they are.
He calls it Scotland's tsunami, using the image of the devastating waves that wrecked many parts of Asia as a metaphor for the destruction caused by the colossal rise and fall of heavy industry.
While he was in London, the Daily Mail ran a campaign against the channel, partly provoked by the Red Light Zone, Cosgrove's late-night scheduling of socio-soft porn.

Once unleashed they create an extraordinary phenomenon, a gigantic tidal wave, far bigger than any normal tsunami, able to cross oceans and ravage countries on the other side of the world.
Only recently have scientists realised the next episode is likely to begin at the Canary Islands, off North Africa, where a wall of water will one day be created which will race across the entire Atlantic ocean at the speed of a jet airliner to devastate the east coast of the United States.
The true destructive potential of landslide-generated tsunami, which scientists named "Mega-tsunami", suddenly began to be appreciated.

 Damonk reviews Tsunami Channel!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Tsunami Channel is a mangart comic strip that focuses on the life of the unnamed Onii-chan (Japanese for "brother"), his 'sister' Kotone -- an android girl, and a tiny gaggle of supporting characters as they all go through the motions of a typical manga story, with all the standard trimmings.
Akira seems to have developed a slow flow in the last 70 strips, and the characters are getting to be a little more palatable, but he needs to stop using other writers' stuff and develop his OWN humour and story.
Just like a Tsunami, this comic generates the awe-inspiring beauty of the tidal wave -- it is a wondrous sight to behold.

So tsunami hazard experts are working on ways to make sure people know when a tsunami is coming and where they can run to get out of harm's way.
To get around this, tsunami watchdogs have turned to sensors that sit on the seafloor and detect the feathery touch of a tsunami passing overhead.
During the 1993 tsunami attack on Okushiri, Japan, Gonzalez says, "there were a number of incidences in which people were educated enough about tsunamis that they were out the door and up the hill in their pajamas within minutes of the warning, and it saved their lives."

In deep water, the energy of a tsunami is constant, a function of its height and speed.
A tsunami has a very long wave length (in the order of 100 km), which makes it act as a shallow-water wave.
Although the epicenter of a large underwater quake and the probable tsunami arrival times can be quickly calculated, it is almost always impossible to know whether massive underwater ground shifts have occurred, resulting in tsunami waves.
