Ocean Waves
http://www.forgefx.com/casestudies/prenticehall/
Free online interactive multimedia 3D resource designed for a middle grades science programs.
Most waves form when winds blowing across the water's surface transmit their energy to the water. This is a real-time 3D wave simulator which demonstrates the connection between wind speed and ocean particle motion depth. The student can modify the properties of an ocean wave and see the effect from any perspective.

http://itic.ioc-unesco.org/library/pubs/textbooks/tsunami_textbooks.html
The Physics of Tsunamis
These tsunami textbooks are divided into four levels. Pre-Elementary school, 2nd to 4th grade, 5th to 8th grade and High School. These levels correspond to the school levels found in Chile: the first level is similar to pre and kindergarten, the second and third level correspond to the first eight years of school and the fourth level to High School. Each text book has its own teacher guide.
Note: the high school textbook (originally one book) has been divided into 5 chapters to facilitate downloading.

PBS Savage Earth : Waves of Destruction : Tsunami
The Japanese characters for tsunami mean "harbor wave," and many people commonly refer to them as tidal waves, but in reality tsunamis have little to do with tides. They are creatures of the open ocean, trains of giant waves that can travel for thousands of miles across the sea and still pack enough energy to smash towns and drown the unwary.
