This comprehensive web resource provides a series of six interactive slide shows (chapters) that introduce the cause and impacts of tsunami with a focus on Australia, Asia and Pacific regions. Produced by experts in the field, this information is clearly and simply described. The engaging presentation is enriched with photography, video, maps, diagrams and animations that illustrate how tsunamis are formed, how early early warning systems work and the threats tsunamis pose to marine and land environments. The final chapter addresses preparedness including how to identify the signs of an impending tsunami and the responses of disaster relief agencies. The resource provides three case studies that unpack the anatomy of a tsunami using a range of primary and secondary sources valuable for geography depth studies. The slide show format is well suited for use of interactive whiteboards or data projectors as well as mobile devices.
