SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – The History Channel will be running a special on Wednesday night that will include a professory from Georgia Tech Savannah.

The two-hour special Megaquake 10.0 explores the rare earth phenomenon. The largest quake ever recorded was a 9.5 earthquake off of Chile in 1960, but new research shows how even larger quakes close to 10.0 could be possible, according to a news release from the History Channel. He'll be discussing recent Tsunami research work on the special.

 "This documentary will include some of our experiments during fall 2010 at Oregon State University (OSU) with the Tsunami by Landslide project," said Dr. Hermann M. Fritz, Associate Professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Tech Savannah, in a statement.

Megaquake 10.0 airs at 9 p.m. Wednesday. For more details, go to Megaquake 10.0.
