Putting Things In Perspective of the Day: NOAA has released this image showing maximum computed tsunami amplitude (in cm) “during 24 hours of wave propagation.”
The data was calculated using the MOST (Method of Splitting Tsunami)forecast model. According to NOAA, “this method takes into account three processes of tsunami evolution: earthquake, transoceanic propagation, and inundation.”
