Tips for the wave height data table
  • You will need to rotate the globe using the hand tool to continue to be able to see the leading edge of the wave.
  • You will need to estimate the wave height based on the color scale.
  • The crest of the leading wave is positive in height and colored yellow-orange-red. The trough between the waves is negative, because the trough of the waves is lower than the average sea level.
  • Note that the wave height will not change dramatically over time, but it does change! Watch carefully!
  • Your estimate will be based on the color scale bar, which does not have a lot of differentiation. Do your best to estimate the wave height.
  • Notice how the tsunami moves in the open ocean compared to how it moves near islands and continents.
