The tsunamis following the 2004 Sumatra and 2012 Japan earthquakes were the largest for 40 years. They were observed with unprecedented detail, allowing us to see how they are caused and giving us insights into famous historical catastrophes such as the Mediterranean tsunami of AD365 and the orphan tsunami of 1700 in Japan.
