Video of day: Tsunami wave height animation

From NOAA’s Environmental Visualization Laboratory:

“This animation shows the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research’s wave height estimation for the March 11, 2011 tsunami that started off the coast of Japan and has placed the entire Pacific basin on alert.”

And for some truly jaw dropping and horrifying images of the earthquake and tsunami, see Boston Globe’s Big Picture blog.
