Tsunamis are enormous and destructive ocean waves triggered by earthquakes under the seafloor.
Hydrosphere: During tsunamis, saltwater from the oceans rushes the land. This pollutes groundwater beneath the soil. Groundwater is supposed to be freshwater as it supplies drinking water to 51% of the U.S. population and 99% of the rural population.
Geosphere: Tsunamis wash away and displace a lot of the soil and rock they come in contact with once they reach land.
Biosphere: Just like all natural disasters, Tsunamis kill many humans and animals when they hit land. They beach many land animals and leave the land flooded, ultimately drowning plants.
The Atmosphere is not impacted by Tsunamis.
An understanding of environmental science can aid in the handling of natural disasters because it can better prepare people by making them knowledgeable on what exactly they’re dealing with and more importantly how to prepare for it if they cannot avoid it.
To create a sustainable future, most importantly, we must do things to reduce climate change. Not only is climate change negatively impacting the biosphere, but it is a factor in the increase of natural disasters. We need to do many things such as:
-Reducing plastic and water waste
-Ride a bicycle to reduce air pollution from vehicles, etc.
