Clear, easy-to-read text pairs with oversized, gripping photos to introduce readers to the basics of tsunamis. Readers will learn why they happen, where they occur, and how they change land and affect communities. A simple diagram illustrates a wave train. A Case Study chapter discusses the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, while a map aids comprehension. The 2011 Japan tsunami is shown as well. Damage, safety methods, rescue missions, measurement, and prediction are also covered. "Breaking News" fact boxes appear throughout, and the book concludes with a "News Flash!" facts page. This compelling title will leave readers feeling more informed about the tsunamis they hear about in the news. Features include a table of contents, a glossary with phonetic spellings, and an index.
