Answer

One of the ecological phenomena that we can study through modeling is the effect of the tsunami in the marine ecosystem and the coast. Since a tsunami is too complicated and too dangerous to study in an actual environment, a model can be useful in understanding the conditions, particularly regarding how tsunamis are formed, how they can be detected, and how they can damage the ecosystem. In this way, people can be prepared in facing this natural disaster by building structures to help lessen the damage and protect the ecosystem.
