The cause of Tonga tsunami
The global tsunami was a result of the sonic gravity wave from the violent eruption of the
Hanga Tonga-Hunga Ha’pai
Continuously moving source of acoustic gravity waves caused the tsunami
When volcanic eruptions excite, they transfer energy to the ocean through vibrations
the violent eruption of volcano generated significant atmospheric waves and caused an exceptionally fast global tsunami
For the first time, a volcano-triggered tsunami was recorded globally with modern & dense instruments
Although its common for volcanic eruptions to cause tsunamis, now trans-oceanic effects are rare.
The eruption of the submarine volcano sent a cloud of ash and gases across Tonga reaching a height of 20 kms.
New Zealand, Chile, Peru & the United States was affected by the tsunami waves
