The NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) and collocated World Data Service (WDS) for Geophysics provide data management and access to global tsunami data. NCEI/WDS’s Global Historical Tsunami Database includes information on over 2500 tsunami events from 2000 B.C. to the present. Available data includes information on tsunami sources, tsunami wave heights and socio-economic impacts. NCEI/WDS developed an animated, interactive map displaying global historical tsunami events since 1850. Combined with a newly developed, educational STEM activity, this interactive web map could serve as an introduction to historical tsunami events and associated data for K-12 and general public audiences.
