Tsunamis propagate at the surface of the deep ocean horizontal phase speeds of approximately 200 m/s, which is about two-thirds of the lower atmospheric sound speed. They have large horizontal wavelengths that are typically of a few hundred kilometers, and they remain coherent over large propagation distances. They also have large horizontal extents (sometimes a few thousand kilometers) parallel to their wave fronts. They can traverse great distances over a span of several hours, so that large… CONTINUE READING
