Navy releases tsunami images
By Richard Black
BBC environment correspondent

UK scientists have released images of the ocean floor near the epicentre of December's giant Asian earthquake.
They were obtained by the Royal Navy's hydrographic survey ship HMS Scott.
The three-dimensional pictures ( newswww.bbc.net.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/pop_ups/05/ sci_nat_asian_tsunami_rupture_zone/html/1.stm) detail the deformed seabed 150km (94 miles) off the Sumatran coast, and reveal huge underwater landslides.
