Tsunamis are extremely powerful — and really scary. In this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby will introduce you to the mechanics of tsunamis - those colossal ocean waves that cause so much destruction and devastation. In this educational, animated movie you’ll learn the difference between tsunamis and tidal waves, as well as how the concept of a tsunami came about. Discover the different kinds of disturbances, like earthquakes, that can cause tsunamis, and how these immense waves can travel huge distances without making even a stir on the surface of the ocean. Plus, you’ll find out what happens when tsunami waves hit a continental shelf. Let’s hope this is the closest you get to one of these ocean beasts!
