Tsunami 26th December 2004 In Sumatra

  1. 1. TSUNAMI 26 TH DECEMBER 2004 AT THE NORTH OF THE ISLAND OF SUMATRA
  2. 2. WHAT CAUSED THE TSUNAMI? <ul><li>The region where the great earthquake occurred on 26 December 2004 , marks the seismic boundary formed by the movement of the Indo-Australian plate as it collides with the Burma subplate, which is part of the Eurasian plate . </li></ul>
  3. 3. History: <ul><li>According to recent studies reported in the Planetary Science Letters, the two plates have separated many million years ago and that the Australian plate is rotating in a counterclockwise direction , putting stress in the southern segment of the India plate. </li></ul><ul><li>For millions of years the India tectonic plate has drifted and moved in a north/northeast direction , colliding with the Eurasian tectonic plate and forming the Himalayan mountains . As a result of such migration, the Indian plate's is a diffuse zone of seismicity and deformation, characterized by numerous large earthquakes. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The animation of collision:
  5. 5. Whether scientists detected the earthquake in time to warn people about it: <ul><li>The large tsunami was a complete surprise for the people living there, but not for the scientists who are aware of the tectonic interactions in the region. Many seismic networks recorded the massive earthquake, but there was no tide gauges or other wave sensors to provide confirmation as to whether a tsunami had been generated. There was no established communications network or organizational infastructure to pass a warning of any kind to the people coastlines. </li></ul>
