Homework Help: Science

Posted by Shadow on Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 12:11am.

I'm currently studying for a science test and I need help on one of the question.

- What is a tsunami and how is it related to an earthquake?

For the part " What is a tsunami, my answer would be Tsunamis are giant waves caused by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions under the sea. Out in the depths of the ocean, tsunami waves do not dramatically increase in height. But as the waves travel inland, they build up to higher and higher heights as the depth of the ocean decreases." I know that a tsunami is related to an earthquake because tsunami is form by earthquake. Anyone could help me add to this? Thanks
