Tsunami Speed Calculator

Calculates the speed of Tsunami waves triggered by underwater earthquake and etc.

Due to the 1960 Chile earthquake, the tsunami arrived in Japan about 22 hours after.
The average speed of the tsunami was about 750km across the Pacific Ocean.

    Purpose of use
    Wondering if I need to go to school after the "big one" hits :) forget snow days, megatsunami brought to you live, in-color on Sci-Fi channel with a double header of megavolcano! :D
    [2]  2021/09/14 21:56   50 years old level / High-school/ University/ Grad student / Very /
    Purpose of use
    Relating data buoy in event mode to surrounding seismic activity to determine orgin of event. Was able to rule out all but one and confirmed with these calculations. Speed estimates and time to target were reasonably accurate and sufficient for the task and ruled out other more alarming man-made potentials in the area.

    The tsunami siren went off.

    Purpose of use
    calculate accuracy of my own calculations

    Purpose of use
    I am a child and I found out about the Status-6 Oceanic Multipurpose StatusSystem and researched that they have 15 in the Arctic ocean which since one could possibly create a 300 ft tsunami the 15 would make a 4.5 km high tsunami which i was wondering how far a 4,500 feet high tsunami can go to see who Russia will use them on or to see if they move them and detonate it and it covers a whole land

    Purpose of use
    to new more about it
    [9]  2015/05/02 00:31   60 years old level or over / A teacher / A researcher / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    Teaching children about wave propagation and the relationship of wave length to speed.
    Comment/Request
    When giving equations a legend should explain all terms used.

    Purpose of use
    Used to estimate how much time someone in Santa Monica would have to evacuate if there was a quake on the Ventura-Pitas Point faults in response to a comment on this article: http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Ventura-earthquake-fault-puts-California-at-risk-6211001.php
