The Haversine Travel Time calculator computes the Great circle arcbetween to points on the globe in a great circle arc at an average velocity.
INSTRUCTIONS:Enter the following:
Travel Time (t): The Haversine Travel Time calculator returns the time required to travel between the points in minutes (m). However, this can be automatically converted to other time units (e.g. seconds, hours, days, months) via the pull-down menu.
The Haversine Travel Time calculator uses the
The . This formula allows the user to enter two points on the globe in latitude and longitude, and a speed. This formula uses the Haversine formula to approximate the distance between the two points. The Haversine formula is based on a spherical earth model employing the Earths mean radius.
This formula will provide a fairly accurate estimate on the amount of time it would take a tsunami to travel between two points. The velocity of a tsunami is reported to be 500 miles per hours when in deep water (See).
