Long wave and tsunami runup



Mt. Fuji off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) (Thanks to CACR !)


Project summary :

This project deals with the numerical modeling of long wave propagation and runup in the ocean. These waves are usually represented by solitary waves which are known to closely model waves generated by tsunamis (i.e., underwater earthquakes see, e.g., Tsunami Research at CERC for general informations on tsunamis).

The methods used to develop models here include fully nonlinear potential flow models of the kind described in the other research project Nonlinear wave shoaling, breaking, and runup on slopes/beaches. These two projects have been carried out somewhat in parallel with the tsunami runup studies, on an on and off basis since 1990. More recently, incollaboration with P. Watts, a 2D model of tsunami/long waves generated by an underwater landslide has been developed and applied to the 1998 Papua New Guinea Event

A review as well as recent work on tsunami runup models can be found in paper number 17 listed below. For recent tsunami research information see the Tsunami Community Webpage.
