Tsunamis, How Do They Work? TED-Ed Wants To Teach You [Video]

And everything chilling underwater? Please.

Nobody would ever call a tsunami a miracle (save for some very grateful ancient Potidaeans, and also maybe Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope), but when you strip away all the horror and destruction, the way that these giant waves are formed is utterly fascinating. With help from Augenblick Studios, Alex Gendler describes just what causes tsunamis and how scientists and engineers are working to keep them from terrorizing coastal populations.
