This visualization from Kenji Satake at the Active Fault Research Center in Tsukuba, Japan, highlights the crests and troughs of the tsunami waves as they travel across the Indian Ocean and refract around islands. Also featured is the manner in which the waves and interfere with each other. The red color means that the water surface is higher than normal, while the blue means lower. This animation runs continually.
