Susan Casey talks tsunamis and the mysteries of wave science

In light of the recent 8.9 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and with tsunami warnings issued to 50 countries and territories, we’ve released Susan Casey’s enlightening PopTech 2010 talk about the history and implications of rogue waves. For three years, Casey studied this mysterious phenomenon, observing waves’ behavior, researching their history, and talking with people who spend their lives in the ocean.

For more on these ‘oceanic criminals,’ as she refers to them, check out Casey’s most recent book, The Wave: In the Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks and Giants of the Ocean.
