      Then the wave crest reaches critical height, breaks, and rushes up onto the shore. This process repeats with each wave crest in the series. In the case of a tsunami, the same process takes place, but greatly magnified. Much greater recession before the wave, much greater critical height, much greater invasion onto the land.
