In the Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

For days before it made landfall, the projections for Hurricane Harvey’s impact on Texas―and other parts of the Gulf Coast―were of devastation.

The hard ideas (science) of big fast waves (tsunamis) explained simply

One last cartoon from Miles Traer: “Inspired by the up-goer five comic from XKCD where I try to explain tsunami science using only the 1,000 most commonly used words in the English language and the AGU Fall Meeting 2016 session NH51D: Interdisciplinary Tsunami Science.”
