A (tsunamis are very hard to detect since they cannot be seen when they are in the deep ocean, the distance between two wave crests can be 500 kilometers and because of this the wave height is only a few feet)

SEISMIC DETECTION SYSTEM (the national oceanic and atmospheric administration has set up a seismic detection system to monitor earthquakes)

BOUYS (AT SEA) (buoys at seas can also detect water pressure changes that can indicate tsunamis moving through the ocean)

OFFSHORE LANDSLIDE (in 1992 an offshore landslide caused a tidal wave of only about three feet high)

NO WAVE / ZERO FEET (in January 13th in 1992 a pacific ocean earthquake off the coast of san Salvador registering 7.6 on the Richter scale did not cause any ocean disturbance)

SUBMARINE EARTHQUAKE (this wave was caused by a magnitude 7.1 submarine earthquake)

26000 PEOPLE (one of the worst tsunami disasters engulfed whole villages along Sanriku Japan in 1896, an underwater earthquake induced a waves of 35 feet drowning some 26,000 people)

NONE (8000 years ago a massive undersea landslide of the coast of Norway sent a 30-foot wall of water barreling into the uninhabited north coast of Europe)
