ter have most of their energy held in the region of the water column near to the surface. Tsunamis are extremely long waves with long periods that can range from five minutes to several hours. Due to their very long wavelengths, tsunamis travel at the shallow water wave celerity which is equal to the square root of the gravitational acceleration times the water depth. The speed of a tsunami in the open ocean can reach in excess of 500 miles per hour. Tsunamis are also characterized by low wave height when moving through oceanic depths and are often hard to recognize when seen out in the deep ocean. As tsunamis approach the coastal region, they are affected by the rapid decrease in water depth.
