Product Description
On the 17th July, 1998 a magnitude 7 earthquake occurred just off the north central coast of Papua New Guinea, generating a very destructive tsunami (see figure 1). The 1998 International Tsunami Survey Team (ITST) concluded that the wave was between 7 to 10 meters with a maximum height of 15 meters and was confined to approximately 40-km of coastline.

This poster shows the cause, effects and conclusions of the tsunami on Pap New Guinea and the surrounding area
