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.

to new more about it

Purpose of use
Teaching children about wave propagation and the relationship of wave length to speed.
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

Purpose of use
Bible event of Moses crossing the water.
In your formula you consider the depth of the water (27 yards or 81 feet deep). However the width was 12 miles by of which one would think the depth plus the 6 miles Pharoah's chariots would have incresed in speed traveling the six miles of which the chariots would have been at least 10 feet off center, thus they would have been hit by the water traveling six miles at a depth of 81 feet. Pharoah's and Pharoah's chariotmens death
Here's a question I tried to ask Yahoo answers but for some reason when I pressed submit nothing happened, so
my next audience to ask is the Dake Bible Discussion Board, hoping some have college math studuents that
can answer my question.
Illustrate the force Pharoah and his 600 chariots, would have been impacted with the force of water roughly 9 stories high rushing from six miles away.
In Exodus Pharoah and his 600 chariots had water 81 inches high (converted from Adam Clarke's yards) and off center of the 12 mile width.
A Roman league was 3 miles wide and the Red Sea accordingly was 4 leagues wide which equates to 12 miles. Thus no doubt Pharoah and
his chariots were not dead center so they would have been hit by a wall of water 81 feet high and having moved six miles before impact.
I just wonder scientificallly, what such a force striking men and 600 horses would have been like? It must have been so much more than
a tsunami. Love to see the computations.
Thanks for reading.

i wish it would also calculate the height

Purpose of use
Need the current velocity of tsunami.
it seems to simple.
