This video examines the impact of the eruption on the atmosphere, and explains why it seems to have caused a world-first observation of a volcanically induced meteotsunami.If you would like to support the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in responding to the Tongan tsunami (and other life-saving projects) you can donate here: https://www.ifrc.org/donateNote that many of the figures in this video have come from volcanologists and geologists on Twitter - they are doing amazing, rapid data visualisation and deserve a follow!LINKS(1) https://twitter.com/_TheSeaning/status/1482234507193466884(2) https://twitter.com/janinekrippner/status/1482513552330362880(3) https://mobile.twitter.com/StefFun/status/1482793707673956353(4) https://matangitonga.to/2022/01/15/tongan-geologists-stunning-Jan14eruptions(5) https://twitter.com/ChurchillWx/status/1482278417466736651(6) https://twitter.com/sakakimoana/status/1482218193619865600(7) https://radar.cloudflare.com/to (note this was accessed 19/1/22)(8) https://www.science.org/doi/pdf/10.1126/science.296.5568.727(9) https://twitter.com/simoncarn/status/1482612959104974848/photo/1(10) https://twitter.com/NiwaWeather/status/1482259999724535809(11) https://twitter.com/didgerifree/status/1482285490107650049(12) https://twitter.com/akrherz/status/1482436390105272320?s=20(13) https://twitter.com/danholley_/status/1482444906169835529(14) https://twitter.com/BMcNoldy/status/1483067201624150016(15) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTRQP6DSaqA&ab_channel=KevinSchaal(16) https://journals.ametsoc.org/configurable/content/journals$002fbams$002f100$002f7$002fbams-d-18-0206.1.xml?t:ac=journals%24002fbams%24002f100%24002f7%24002fbams-d-18-0206.1.xml(17) https://twitter.com/TransTerraScape/status/1482704383532224516(18) https://twitter.com/DrGregDusek/status/1482427445743697927You can support the channel by becoming a patron at http://www.patreon.com/simonoxfphysCheck out my website! https://www.simonoxfphys.com/---------- II ----------My twitter - http://www.twitter.com/simonoxfphysMy facebook - http://www.facebook.com/youtubesimonMy insta - http://www.instagram.com/simonoxfphysMy goodreads - http://www.goodreads.com/simonoxfphys---------- II ----------Music by Epidemic Sound: http://epidemicsound.comSome stock footage courtesy of Getty.Looking why the Tongan eruption on January 15th was so unique, the impact of the Tonga eruption on the atmosphere, the Pacific tsunami from the Tongan volcano, and the unprecedented meteotsunami that was detected in the Pacific and Caribbean. Really this video is about ocean-atmosphere dynamics, and how the planetary fluids of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans can interact to produce amazing results. If you like videos from Smarter Every Day, Veritasium, PBS Eons, Crash Course, or Sci Show you will enjoy this interesting video about the Tonga eruption and tsunami.Huge thanks to my supporters on Patreon: Edwin, GordonV47, Andrew Knop, Shab Kumar, Cameron Grey, Brady Johnston, Liat Khitman, Jesper Norsted, Kent & Krista Halloran, Rapssack, Kevin O'Connor, Timo Kerremans, Thines Ganeshamoorthy, Ashley Wilkins, Michael Parmenter, Samuel Baumgartner, Dan Sherman, ST0RMW1NG 1, Adrian Sand, Morten Engsvang, Josh Schiager, Farsight101, K.L, poundedjam, Daan Sneep, Felix Freiberger, Chris Field, Robert Connell, Jaime Stark, Kolbrandr, , Sebastain Graf, Dan Nelson, Shane O'Brien, Alex, Fujia Li, Harry Eakins, Will Tolley, Cody VanZandt, Jesper Koed, Jonathan Craske, Albrecht Striffler, Igor Francetic, Jack Troup, SexyCaveman , James Munro, Oskar Hellström, Sean Richards, Kedar , Alastair Fortune, bitreign33 , Mat Allen, Anne Smith, Rafaela Corrêa Pereira, Colin J.
