Tsunami

20 meters waves in front of lighthouse in Nazari, Portugal.
An analysis of historical seismic events by a USC Dornsife scientist helps explain why large tsunamis still occur after relatively small earthquakes.

This paper presents an innovative method of estimating the relative risk of buildings exposed to seismic and tsunami hazards in volcanic islands is applied to Stromboli (Italy).
A comprehensive review on structural tsunami countermeasures
This paper evaluates the efficacy of hard countermeasures to tsunamis, comparing damages and dependencies, and presenting new approaches for mitigating tsunami impacts.
Cover and title of publication
This contributing paper delves into the impact of a tsunami and the COVID-19 pandemic on the coastal tourism sector in Pandeglang Regency (Banten Province) in Indonesia.
India on Monday proposed further enhancing cooperation with Germany in the field of science and technology, with a focus on research on ‘atypical tsunami’ generated by under-sea landslides with a focus on the Makran sub-duction zone.
GPS satellite in the Earth's orbit
A new method for detecting tsunamis using existing GPS satellites orbiting Earth could serve as an effective warning system for countries worldwide, according to a new study by an international team led by UCL researchers.
Areal view of rice terraces in the jungle in Indonesia.
Indonesia is familiar with various kinds of hazard. As it is located within the ring of fire, it faces a constant risk of earthquakes and tsunamis. Heavy rainfalls persist for almost half of the year, provoking risks of floods and landslides.
A first-of-its-kind cosmic ray sensor successfully observes tsunami waves.
Coastal boulders give scientists an idea of past seismicity in a region, which helps them understand the potential for future earthquakes and tsunamis.
Cover
An integrated evacuation simulation method that combines a numerical communication model on social networks and a detailed physical evacuation simulation is developed in this paper.
