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.

Stanford University postdoc Miles Traer, once again, was cartooning from the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Follow him on Twitter @Geo_Miles
