Evaluating the effectiveness of tidal wave barriers
The artificial mangrove swamp will absorb the impact of tsunami waves better than the man-made barrier.
A tsunami occurs when a series of very huge waves are generated along the ocean coastline. It is normally triggered by a violent underwater event such as a landslide, an earthquake or a volcano eruption. These events cause a large amount of ocean water displaced, triggering a tsunami.
When an underwater earthquake happens, the seafloor is suddenly becomes elevated or sinks. This causes the overlying water displaced from its state of equilibrium. The huge amount of displaced water creates waves. These waves form a tsunami.
As a tsunami approaches the shore, the sea becomes shallow, cand this in fact causes incoming waves to grow taller. Such waves can reach heights of 30 meters!. A tsunami causes a lot of damage to the shoreline. Often, many lives and properties are destroyed.
