Tsunami that struck Japan in March resulted from merging waves



By the CNN Wire Staff
December 6, 2011 -- Updated 1029 GMT (1829 HKT)






The earthquake and tsunami together killed 15,840 people, according to the most recent death toll.


STORY HIGHLIGHTS


  • Tsunami that struck Japan in March was the result of at least two waves that combined, scientists say
  • Undersea ridges and mountains channeled waves together to create more powerful tsunami
  • Satellite data allowed scientists to observe a "merging tsunami" for the first time





(CNN) -- The devastating wall of water that struck
Japan in March was the result of at least two waves that combined to
create a more powerful tsunami, U.S. scientists said Monday.

Ocean ridges and mountain ranges below the surface of the water
channeled the waves created by the 9.0 magnitude earthquake off the
coast of Japan, bringing them together far out at sea to form a "merging
tsunami," according to researchers from NASA and Ohio State University.

The earthquake and tsunami together killed 15,840 people, according
to the most recent death toll, and set off a nuclear crisis at the
Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Satellite data have enabled the researchers to come up with an
account of the formation of the tsunami and its destructive force.

"Nobody had definitively observed a merging tsunami until now," Y.
Tony Song, a research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in
Pasadena, Calif., said in a statement.

The results of the research could help predict the risks from tsunamis in the future.

"We can use what we learned to make better forecasts of tsunami
danger in specific coastal regions anywhere in the world," said
Professor C.K. Shum of Ohio State University.

I watched the tail end of it last night and will watch tonight. The Japanese amazed us all with their stoicism and the Country is getting back on it"s feet
with little help from the rest of the World. The only help I remember was Save the Children to help entertain and clothe them when they were confined with their Parents and everyone else in cramped conditions. British Dog handlers also took their dogs to search for survivors, there must have been aid from other Countries but I don"t remember.

It appears the Company who owned the Reactors is to be sued.
