Deducing the scale of tsunamis from the ’roundness’ of deposited gravel

Scientists have found a link between the ’roundness’ distribution of tsunami deposits and how far tsunamis reach inland. They sampled the ’roundness’ of gravel from different tsunamis in Koyadori, Japan, and found a common, abrupt change in composition approximately 40% of the ‘inundation distance’ from the shoreline, regardless of tsunami magnitude. Estimates of ancient tsunami size from geological deposits may help inform effective disaster mitigation.

This more traditional concept of natural things which can still be found today implies a distinction between the natural and the artificial, with the artificial being understood as that which has been brought into being by a human consciousness or a human mind.
