[Watch] This Massive Wave Tank Helps Study Tsunamis


These giant man-made waves help scientists understand tsunamis. It holds more than 9 million liters of water and makes waves 15 feet high. This tank shows what computer simulations can’t.

This is how scientists study tsunamis. The Delta Flume is a massive wave tank in the Netherlands. It can make waves 15 feet high. It holds more than nine million liters of water. But how does it help with tsunami research?

A huge wave board pushes the water at one end. It pushes with enough force to show aside five brick houses. Computer models can’t show everything that physical waves can. The research will help develop solutions to complex climate challenges.
