Researchers say magnetic fields in oceans can help detect tsunamis

Japanese researchers said they found a new way to define tsunamis: Observe magnetic fields generated by tsunami-induced movements of seawater.

The researchers said such observations make it easier to determine the direction, size and arrival time of a tsunami, Jiji Press reported Thursday.

The team said it successfully detected magnetic fields generated as tsunami spread after a massive earthquake off Chile in February 2010. Using underwater, high-precision electromagnetometers, the team said it detected magnetic fields near Tahiti, nearly 4,350 miles away.

The findings were published in the British journal Scientific Reports.

Assessing the tsunami risk from very large volcanic island landslides
Southampton UK (SPX) Dec 16, 2013
The risk posed by tsunami waves generated by Canary Island landslides may need to be re-evaluated, according to researchers at the National Oceanography Centre. Their findings suggest that these landslides result in smaller tsunami waves than previously thought by some authors, because of the processes involved. The researchers used the geological record from deep marine sediment cores to ... read more
