About this book

Tsunami science has evolved significantly since the occurrence of two of the most destructive natural disasters in recent times: The 26 December 2004 Sumatra tsunami and the 11 March 2011 Tohoku (Great East Japan) tsunami. As a result, scientists from around the world have come together to engage in tsunami research. Significant progress has been achieved in all aspects of tsunami hydrodynamics, detection, generation, and probability of occurrence. The papers presented in this second of three topical volumes of Pure and Applied Geophysics reflect the current state of tsunami science, including the further examination of the 2011 Tohoku event and its aftershocks, tsunami hydrodynamic and numerical modeling, hazard assessments and warning. In addition to underwater earthquakes, some other tsunamigenic phenomena are also discussed. Collectively, this volume highlights contemporary trends in global tsunami science, both fundamental and applied toward hazard assessment and mitigation. The volume is of interest to scientists and practitioners involved in all aspects of tsunamis from source processes to coastal impacts. Postgraduate students in geophysics, oceanography and coastal engineering – as well as students in the broader geosciences, civil and environmental engineering – will also find the book to be a valuable resource, as it combines recent case studies with advances in tsunami science and natural hazards mitigation.
