New research explains why some shorelines with off-shore earthquake zones can act as "tsunami magnets", focusing and amplifying tsunami energy to product devastating flooding as much as 50% deeper than was expected. This explains the unexpectedly large run-ups which have been observed for some tsunamis such as the 2011 Japan tsunami and the 2006 Java tsunami.
