Since 1635 B.C. tsunamis have been
the cause for legends of
floods, even the disappearance of islands and cultures
in Greece. Yet geological evidence
has proven that even larger
tsunamis may be produced by giant landslides at oceanic
island volcanoes such
as those of Hawaii. Computer
models suggest that these landslides can be anywhere
from 20 to 40 meters high
as they approach coastal
areas. Simon Day, University College of London, will
speak about this topic as part
of a series on "The Impact of Catastrophic Events
in History ".
