        abstract:  Discover where, when and how severely tsunamis affected Earth in geologic history. Information regarding Tsunami Deposits and Proxies for Tsunami Events complements the historical records currently available through the Global Tsunami Database.
        purpose:  Tsunami deposits are the physical evidence left behind when a tsunami impacts a shoreline or affects submarine sediments. These deposits can be preserved in the geologic record and studied long after the tsunami waves dissipate. The tsunami deposits database compliments and extends the historical record of tsunami events.
