New Research Exposes Weird Tsunamis Caused by Gravity Waves

On April 13, 2018, a huge swell of water broke on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. It was a tsunami, one far from any fault line typically associated with the ginormous waves. This was a meteotsunami, a wall of water forged from the air conditions above it.Read more...

How to survive a tsunami

If you, your family, or friends ever go near the shore of the ocean or a lake, you need to learn about tsunamis. Unfortunately, the current public perception of the tsunami hazards is all too often a three-step denial: (1) It won’t happen to me. (2) If it does, it won’t be that bad. (3) If it is bad, there’s nothing I could’ve done anyway. This perception must be changed in order to save lives and build a culture of tsunami hazard preparedness.So, the logical question is “When will the next big ...

Flowing marine research center inspired by tsunami waves

In response to an international design competition for a marine research center in Bali, architects Alfonso Lopez and Duncan Pendlebury of Maine-based architectural studio Solus 4 developed an energy-efficient design with a sculptural form inspired by tsunami waves — the same subject of research for the proposed facility. The undulating shape of the organic building would also reflect site-specific conditions so as to optimize passive solar conditions and use of sustainable systems such as rainw...

Fifty years on: what has plate tectonics ever done for us?

You might think that a phenomenon such as plate tectonics, operating on a timescale of millions of years, would have little relevance to our lives today. In fact, plate tectonics could be the reason we, and the rest of life on Earth, are here at all. In 2004, John Prescott, then Deputy Prime Minister in Tony Blair’s New Labour government, remarked, “the tectonic plates appear to be moving,” referring to the impending downfall of Mr Blair. Since then, the tectonic plates metaphor has been applied...

Major medical incidents [timeline]

Major incidents are defined as any incident ‘that requires the mobilisation and use of extraordinary resources’; with the NHS further expanding the definition of such events as ‘any incident where the location, number, severity, or type of live casualties requires extraordinary resources’. There have been many major incidents throughout history that have required an ‘extraordinary’ response by emergency services, medical personnel, and government bodies. Whilst this definition may seem strict, t...
