[ Watch the Video ] Researchers from NASA and Ohio State University have discovered that the deadly tsunami generated from the March 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake that devastated northeastern Japan resulted from merging waves, causing the killer tsunami to double in intensity over ocean ridges, and then amplifying its power upon landfall. Data taken from NASA and European radar satellites captured at least two wave fronts during the events that day. The fronts merged to form a single, more...

A NASA-led research team has successfully demonstrated for the first time elements of a prototype tsunami prediction system that quickly and accurately assesses large earthquakes and estimates the size of resulting tsunamis. After the magnitude 8.8 Chilean earthquake on Feb. 27, a team led by Y. Tony Song of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., used real-time data from the agency's Global Differential GPS (GDGPS) network to successfully predict the size of the resulting...

PASADENA, Calif. "“ A wave of new NASA research on tsunamis has yielded an innovative method to improve existing tsunami warning systems, and a potentially groundbreaking new theory on the source of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. In one study, published last fall in Geophysical Research Letters, researcher Y. Tony Song of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., demonstrated that real-time data from NASA's network of global positioning system (GPS) stations can...
