The purpose of this brochure is to increase awareness and knowledge of tsunamis. This
phenomenon, "tsunami," is a series of traveling ocean waves of extremely long
length generated by disturbances associated primarily with earthquakes occurring below or
near the ocean floor. Underwater volcanic eruptions and landslides can also generate
tsunamis.
