                  THE MATHEMATICS OF TSUNAMIS
             By Eric W. Weisstein and Michael Trott

     http://mathworld.wolfram.com/news/2005-01-14/tsunamis/

  Weisstein and Trott write, "The recent tragic events
  following the December 2004 magnitude 9.0 earthquake in the
  Indian Ocean have reminded us of the need for scientific
  understanding and modeling of complicated physical phenomena
  in order to prevent unnecessary loss of life from natural
  disasters (cf. Post and Vatta 2005)."

  Their article is the latest in the MathWorld Headline News
  area of MathWorld from Wolfram Research.
