2: Unlike waves tsunamis don't occur when wind blows against the water but they do occur when an earth quakes happen miles underwater. | Unlike waves, tsunamis don't form by wind blowing on the top of the water. Sudden movements in the earth's plates can cause earthquakes offshore that can cause tsunamis.
3: Other ways tsunamis come to be is by meteors hitting the water, causing sudden movements in the water. Landslides or volcanic eruption.s can also cause tsunamis
4: Other differences between waves and tsunamis are that a wave's length is 100 feet while a tsunami can be an unbelievable 100 miles!
5: Another difference between waves and tsunamis are that tsunamis have three stages
6: Stage 1 The first stage in a tsunami is generation, or where the earthquake or meteors occur.
7: Stage 2 The second stage is propagation, or were the tsunami is going.
8: Stage 3 This is the final stage in a tsunami. This stage is were the tsunami hits land. This stage is called induction.
9: Job picks If you would like to have a career in this field, learn about seismologists and what they do.
10: How to keep safe If you live on a coast or on a island then you need to learn how to keep safe
11: There are telltale signs of a tsunami like a sudden shift in tides, like the shore's water being sucked up. Animals acting weird and trying to run away, but once the tsunami is in sight there's no use running away. Tsunamis can travel across the Pacific Ocean in almost a day. That's as fast as a jet plane!
12: Tsunamis kill thousands of people every year.
13: Some tsunamis are bigger than others but all are dangerous. If you hear a tsunami warning get to high ground.

15: Science experiments Materials Big Fish Tank Wooden board Twine Sand Hinge screwdriver and screws What you need to do is take the board and screw it in one side of the fish tank with the hinge. Next take the screw driver and drill a hole in the side of the board that moves up and down then take the twine and tie it on the board through the hole next place the sand on the other side of the tank. Fill the tank with water until it reaches the shore of your island. You are now ready to make the tsunami. take the twine and pull on it causing the board to go up and down like an under water earthquake. Try different sized boards and different types of rocks (sand,pebbles,clay,etc)
