The timely topic of tsunami geology was addressed during a recent international workshop sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). Participants from 15 nations compared criteria for identifying tsunamis by their geologic signatures; explored applications to plate tectonics, hazard assessment, and public education; and discussed recommendations for research priorities. A post-workshop trip occasioned heartfelt exchanges with Washington state coastal residents two days after a local tsunami scare.
