Tsunami-Mahidol Dental Taskforce

An underwater earthquake is a natural phenomenon that can create a tidal wave called a tsunami. Tsunamis can be initiated by the movement of the earth’s tectonic plates that registers greater than 7.0 on the Richter scale. The wave may cause major destruction to any coastal areas within the tidal wave’s reach. Usually, the deceased are identified and a sample of DNA can be analyzed soon after death. However as decomposition occurs, the identification becomes more difficult. Forensic dentistry is a valuable tool in this situation. [ more details ... ]
