This comprehensive hazard assessment identified Guam’s tsunami threat and addressed the widely mis-taken belief that Guam is not at risk for tsunami haz-ards, by providing the following scientific conclu-sions: Guam is NOT totally protected by the coral reefs.

• The reef is not a sufficient barrier to prevent tsunami impact at the coastline. Although both are sea waves, a tsunami and a tidal wave are two different and unrelated phenomena. A tidal wave is a shallow water wave caused by the gravitational interactions between the Sun, Moon, and Earth.
