6 Facts About Tsunami

The extraordinary type of ocean wave not related to the wind or tidal wave is often referred to as the Tsunami. It is produced due to the seductions of the ocean floor or due to the eruption of the volcano, meteorite impacts etc., in the seabed. Due to the reduction of a large amount of area the disturbance to seawater can be high leading to larger waves. Occasionally banks of the larger lakes can also suffer from massive tidal wave or the tsunami.

Tides are normally generated from the gravitational pull of the moon and the earth. The waves of the tsunami are larger than thirty meters and can last from several minutes to hours. Series of the wave is often referred to as wave train occurs at the time of Tsunami occurrence. Due to the humongous nature Tsunami is the cause of the massive destruction of life and property of the low-lying coastal areas.

Tsunami is the word originates from Japanese. Sometimes seismic sea wave is often used to describe the tsunami before the wide use of the name.  

Facts About Tsunami are:

1. World Largest Tsunami

The tsunami of 2004 is the massive tsunami that occurs in the Indian Ocean. This massive tsunami has killed more than two hundred thousand people in more than 14 countries.

2. The speed of the Tsunami

The speed of the Tsunami depends on the disturbance of the floor. Generally, the speed can be expected to be higher than 800 kilometers in one hour.

3. Prediction of Tsunami

Tsunami is mostly due to the earthquake on the ocean floor. Despite all the advancement of technology tsunami cannot be predicted with the precise certainty. A team of the Geologist, oceanographers, seismologist jointly makes the decision about the occurrence of Tsunami.

4. The warning system in Tsunami

The place that is prone to the Tsunami has the Tsunami warning system in order to avoid the casualty. Proper education about the tsunami to the people lying in the coastal area can be effective. Evacuation of the people in the time of occurrence of the tsunami is done to minimize the casualty.

5. Ring of Fire

More than eighty percent of the Tsunami happens to the Pacific Ocean that has higher tectonic shift due to earthquake and volcano. The coalition of 26 nations has given rise to The Pacific Tsunami Warning system headquartered in Hawaii.

6. Precaution

Staying in the high place where the ocean wave did not strike can be best options. Expert advice not to fight against the current of ocean wave when get caught by the huge wave. If caught in unknown place following the local guide can be the best advice. Do not panic and try to run against the wave at the time where the massive wave is striking. The best way will be to attach in the firm substratum until the wave demises.

This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
