Tsunami Ripples Across Globe: Animated Video

NOAA (The Nation­al Ocean­ic and Atmos­pher­ic Admin­is­tra­tion) has released an ani­mat­ed video show­ing the tsuna­mi orig­i­nat­ing off the coast of Japan, and then spread­ing across the Pacif­ic. Dra­mat­ic, to say the least.

Last year, NOAA also pro­duced an ani­ma­tion that visu­al­ized the tremors from the big Chilean quake as they worked their way across the globe. Catch it here.
