It shows very clearly the relation between an earthquake occuring in the seafloor and the consequent tsunami-wave. It doesn't show anything about how the tsunami evolve afterward in relation with the depth and how it bounce when it strikes the coasts

I like the view of this animation. At first you see the crossection of the fault and then see the bird's eye view of how the wave moves out from the epicenter.

This source would be good as a supplement to a lecture. If this were inserted into a presentation it would go a long way in helping the students understand.
