I've just been reading through the thread and I watched the first video. Great thread BTW!
I noticed Chrono16 made a common transatlantic error in his calculations so i decided to try it myself on the Purdue site.
Chrono16 said feet but he entered 1500 metres. In most of the results there is only a slight difference (6.8 becomes 7 richter, etc). However, in the
tsunami one, there is a HUGE difference. An enormous monstrosity of a difference between 1500 feet and 1500 metres.
1500 metres - wave amplitude between 15.9 cm and 21 metres (6 imches to 79 feet, a huge scope of possibilities)
1500 feet - wave amplitide between 6.69 metres and 13 metres! (21.9 feet to 41.3 feet - smaller scope, FAR more likely to produce a killer wave)
Try it yourself.
