Yes indeed, there is now a tsunami demo within the MMOG, Second Life…and to top it all, the US Federal Agency that researches the oceans, climate, weather and anything else having to do with gigantic masses of air and water, aka the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has set up shop in SL.
Because why, you might ask? They see the educational opportunity that MMOG’s bring into being. On their island sim Second Lifers can find fully interactive educational demos about the ocean and weather. Hey, you can even take an airplane ride into a hurricane – now that’s a blast!
