In this past unit in Science class, we learned about Geology and the studies of Earth. Our task was to use lego pieces and rebuild anything that we learned about in our unit. We decided to re-create a tsunami well at least we tried to. Our model shows that a tsunami is happening; tsunami’s is a series of waves generated in the ocean or other bodies of water by a disturbance or sudden movement such as an earthquake, landslide, volcanic eruption, or very rarely, a meteorite impact. Although relatively infrequent, violent volcanic eruptions represent also impulsive disturbances, which can displace a great volume of water and generate extremely destructive tsunami waves in the immediate source area.Some, but not all, earthquakes are related to volcanoes. For example, most earthquakes are along the edges of tectonic plates. Most earthquakes directly beneath a volcano are caused by the movement of magma. The magma exerts pressure on the rocks until it cracks the rock. This process can cause tsunami’s.Tsunami’s can cause things such as floods and in some cases when there caused by earthquakes, it can cause tectonic plates to move. Tectonic plates is a massive, irregularly shaped slab of solid rock, generally composed of both continental and oceanic lithosphere. Plate size can vary greatly, from a few hundred to thousands of kilometers across; the Pacific and Antarctic Plates are among the largest.Tectonic plates move around and can cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and this can cause tsunami’s. Generally tsunamis arrive, not as giant waves, but as a forceful rapid increase in water levels that results in violent flooding.However, when tsunami waves become extremely large in height, they savagely attack coastlines, causing devastating property damage and loss of life.
