Royal Navy releases tsunami earthquake images

The Royal Navy has released images taken as part of a mission by HMS Scott, a Royal Navy survey ship, with the participation of a team from Southampton Oceanography Centre at Southanpton University, of the seabed in the area where the Indian Ocean earthquake occurred on 26th December 2004, resulting in the devastating series of tidal waves (tsunamis) which killed so many people in the area. It is hoped that this research will help to plan where sensors need to be placed on the seabed so that future occurences might be predicted.
