Tracking Tsunamis

NOAA Ocean Today

Tsunamis, giant waves caused by underwater earthquakes, speed across the ocean at 400 miles per hour. Early warning systems, such as NOAA’s DART systems, are key to saving lives. Today, 47 DART stations are positioned all around the world ready to detect and warn coastal communities about the next potential tsunami.
