Question and answer
Tidal waves, or tsunamis, are caused by plate movements under the ocean and displace huge amounts of water. Explain why the term "tidal wave" is a misnomer and propose a name that would be a better
fit for that type of wave
t is a misnomer because tidal wave assumes that it was caused by the tides. Tsunamis are caused by tectonic forces within the earth, not tides. [ Tsunami is a perfectly good name, but if you want another name that is better than "tidal wave" then perhaps tectonic wave would be a better name ]

Weegy: Mangroves, admittedly, are not only important but crucial for the coastal areas. Since estuarine areas are highly populated areas, the slightest ecological imbalance will take a heavy toll. They play a vital role in stabilizing these areas. [ No engineering and technological solutions can be sought for stabilizing these areas. Even if we negate all benefits of mangroves as forests, their value as "protector of shore-line" is enough to ... (More)
