What is a tsunami and how does it occur? 80 percent of tsunamis are produced when earthquakes displace the sea floor, and the rest are from landslides underwater. There are experiments being done now to predict where tsunamis are forming. Examples are given of famous landslides and tsunamis. To produce a tsunami, the sea bed has to be moved, which means that the epicenter was very shallow.
