Oceans Pacific

Today, many people lined the shores of California to witness the swell of the devastating Tsunami that struck Japan.  This has been a tragic time for  the nation of Japan and thier Families abroad  – God bless!  Also three photograhers were swept to sea in Northern California this morning, two emerged….

This is a shot of the sunset from Pacific Beach California – the Pacific was just that, “pacific”.

The term tsunami comes from the Japanese, meaning  habor and wave. Tsunami are sometimes referred to as tidal waves. In recent years, this term has fallen out of favor, especially in the scientific community, because tsunami actually have nothing to do with tides. Tsunami and tides both produce waves of water that move inland, but in the case of tsunami the inland movement of water is much greater and lasts for a longer period, giving the impression of an incredibly high tide. (Click image for larger view)
