This book provides quick but meaningful information about occurrence and mechanism of Tsunami - a series of waves and nature's most deadly phenomenon. Tsunami, a newly coined word for a common man, shook eleven countries of the world on December 26, 2004 with its exceptional strength.
All the factors - volcanic eruption, earthquake, meteor impact and the undersea land slides which may give birth to devastating Tsunami are explained in a lucid manner. Ideas about the prediction of earthquake, volcanic eruption, Indian scientists prediction Tsunami based on their astronomical calculations, warning signals and protective measures etc. are discussed, and recent Indonesian Tsunami is focussed in the book.
The book may be found useful by the readers.
