An interactive map of the New South Wales tsunami features, with many new photographs, is now available at: A last wave goodbye - An asteroid landing in the ocean would produce the tsunami to end them all, says Duncan Steel. Superfloods Controversial, But Aid Flood Prediction - The massive flood cut deep canyons, stripped away soils, and carried boulders all the way from Idaho to what is now Portland, Ore.
In 48 hours, it transformed the landscape of the Pacific Northwest. It provides a comprehensive reference to the subject of tsunami: See review on 26 Mar Threat of Giant Waves? Giant wave could threaten US - A collapsing volcano in the Atlantic could unleash a giant wave of water that would swamp the Caribbean and much of the eastern seaboard of the United States.
Also in New Scientist. But Tsunami expert Charles Mader advises " I told Horizon that a La Palama landslide would not be a threat to the U. A method of estimating the risk to coastal regions from tsunami generated by such impacts is presented.
New book on tsunami by Ted Bryant. Describes the effects ocean impacts by asteroids 5km and 10km in diameter. The authors indicate there is uncertainty about their earlier work involving smaller asteroids and that they are developing improved models.
They point out that localised tsunami effects can be delayed and peaks can occur well after the first wave arrives.
Burkle, Space Policy Vol 16 not online - uses estimates of risk and fatalities from Table 1 below and refers to this page. For alternative estimates of hazards to a populated Earth see my Space.
For a less technical description of asteroid tsunami please see my Space. Consequences of 2km impact included. These estimates assume that impacts are randomly distributed in time. It is possible the Earth may be subjected to a barrage of asteroids or comet fragments from time to time.
This may have happened over the past few thousand years and could be a source of some of the tsunami that appear to have struck Australia during this period. Scientists know of no asteroid or comet that is on a collision course with Earth, at least for the next thousand years or so.
Amongst the estimated 1, or so undiscovered large objects there could be one on a collision course with Earth in the next few decades.
This is very unlikely but it is simply crazy for mankind not to look for them with a program like Spaceguard, just in case something needs to be done to avoid a collision. For some coastal locations which are particularly vulnerable to tsunami the risk is two or three times greater.
Topics covered temporary link to abstracts include: For flexibility in circulating the document non-ASCII characters have been avoided and Fortran style formulae have been used: Risk calculations should be regarded as "ballpark" estimates, pending further research on the frequency of impacts and the vulnerability of coastlines to tsunami.There are two aspects of early warning system.
One is the availability of an effective technique to forecast the disaster with its extent and the other is effective communication of the same to the civil authority responsible for rescue operations.
