What are the characteristics of the natural disaster of tsunamis?
Was this answer useful?
Thanks for the feedback!
I know you can get this anywhere, but tsunamis occur when a violent eruption in the crust ( aka. an earthquake ) moves water in a huge burst of energy and moves the water. The… wind can also play a role in the tsunami and how fast it travels. When the tsunamis usually occur in deep ocean, it is rare or even impossible to happen right at land and still cause a large tsunami, but when moving more towards shore, the wave length decreases and the height increases and soon becomes this big, towering wall of water.
yes. physical means you can see the action happening
It is a disaster that wasn't caused by mankind. It is a disaster caused naturally, like a major hurricane, a tsunami, an earthquake, a volcano eruption, a flood etc. … Any event or force of nature that has catastrophic consequences, such as an avalanche, earthquake, flood, forest fire, hurricane, lightning, tornado, tsunami, and volcanic eruptions; a destructive event that affects the natural world and human communities. An earthquake that causes damage to property and loss of life is an example of a natural disaster. A natural disaster is the effect of a natural hazard (e.g. flood, tornado, volcano eruption, earthquake, or landslide) that affects the environment, and leads to financial, environmental and/or human losses. According to Wikipedia
These are termed as natural disasters as they are caused due to the movement of tectonic plates and not through human activities.
Because the earth, or nature, is causing them. Humans have nothing to do with it. Earthquakes are caused by the earth's plates moving, and tsunamis are caused usually by earth…quakes. Landslides are generally caused by either rain or earthquakes, not humans. (usually)
A natural disaster is called a natural disaster because it is natural; man has no control over it's power. All of the hurricanes, tsunamis, cyclones, earthquakes, floods and a…ll natural disasters have had a major effect on both natural and man-made areas; therefore making it a disaster.
Disasters that are caused by nature, not man... Earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, floods, wildfires, etc.
Earthquakes Tsunami and landslides classified as natural disaster because they are caused by nature hazards.
because tsunamis take alot more lives than other natural disasters do
A tsunami is a natural occurrence often cause by an earthquake under the ocean or a volcanic explosion. When one comes ashore where people live it is usually a disaster as it …destroys buildings and kills most people in it's path, so it is termed a natural disaster, one not caused by people.
We live on a dynamic planet. Everything is is motion. The air moves causing winds, the sea moves causing tides and floods, the rocks move causing earthquakes. A natural di…saster occurs when living organisms are affected by our planet, whether it is a river flooding causing animals to drown or a volcano releasing dust and gasses. If we were on a more stable planet such as Mars we would suffocate or freeze.
Natural disasters can take on one of two defining characteristics in terms of their lifespan: they can either be rapid-onset hazards, or slow-onset hazards. The former refers …to disasters like earthquakes and landslides, where the triggering action of the potential disaster happens relatively quickly and without much physical warning. The latter refers to disasters that develop over long periods of time, like seasonal droughts or lengthy cold spells. Alternatively, disasters can be defined according to the extent of their impacts. Catastrophic disasters classify hazards in terms of their effect on human life over a large spatial scale. Events like massive volcanic eruptions (like the eruption of Krakatoa, Indonesia, in 1883 - the effects of which were seen and felt as far afield as Sweden, continental-wide droughts (such as those that have ravaged the African continent) or huge tsunamis (like the 2004 Southeast Asian tsunami). Conversely, other disasters may not have huge impacts on people, but may change the face of a landscape permanently - avalanches or landslides may occur in uninhabited areas, where the only physical result is a sudden change in the physical environment.
cyclones are the most worst natural disaster
It destroys our land and kills millions of lifes
Floods are almost always the number one disaster. They also cause a lot of damage to buildings.
they can affect a huge impact on people so that's how they are classified as a natural disaster. Good question
