Title: Tsunamis: Tides have nothing to do with it
Description: Tsunamis are devastating. Usually associated with earthquakes in the Pacific, these giant surges of oceanic water can kill thousands and do billions of dollars of damage in minutes. Surprisingly, most people in Oregon are not aware of the tsunami history and hazard along our very own coast. Listen in as we examine the science of tsunamis and sit down for a special interview with USGS scientist Brian Atwater and Oregon Office of Emergency Management Geologic Hazard Coordinator Althea Turner. Plus, a recap of this week's Geological Society of America annual meeting.
