what are he two ways tsunamis differ from regular waves

Jan 14th, 2015

Tsunamis occur as a result of the movement of a huge volume of  seawater from the seabed to the sea surface, whereas ocean waves are caused by the movement of wind over the sea surface. Tide embankments can protect us from ocean waves, but are sometimes overwhelmed by tsunamis.

Tsunamis are characterized as shallow-water waves, with long periods and wave lengths
