Inundation in Crescent City, California, from a tsunami triggered by the Great Alaskan earthquake. In the past 10 years, 12 major tsunamis have struck coastlines around the Pacific Rim, causingFile Size: 1MB. Mitigating disaster risks needs to focus on reduction of hazards and vulnerabilities. With an unpredictable tsunami-hazard, reduction of the hazard is unlikely. The special cause of the floods - not by high rainfall or snowmelt and swelling of rivers - resulted in .

The effectiveness of a tsunami warning, in terms of hazard reduction, depends greatly on the availability of accurate tsunami inundation maps. The consequences of the December global tsunami, which originated in the Indian Ocean, quickly became a tragic lesson for the majority of the countries in the region.

This book describes significant tsunami events, presents the history of the PTWS design and implementation and its milestones. It also reviews main scientific and technological aspects of tsunami detection and warning, and discuses its managerial, educational, and societal dimensions.

Meyers R.A., ed. Berlin and. This type of well‐localized hazard information can only be provided by high‐resolution predictions. Recently, tsunami fragility curves have been actively studied [e.g., Koshimura et al., ; Suppasri et al.,], with applications of the fragility curve concept from seismic risk analysis to tsunami risk analysis.

The curves Cited by: Tsunami runup occurs when a peak in the tsunami wave travels from the near-shore region onto shore. Runup is a measurement of the height of the water onshore observed above a reference sea level.

Except for the largest tsunamis, such as the Indian Ocean event, most tsunamis do not result in giant breaking waves (like normal surf waves at. 1 Introduction. Tsunamis are deadly natural hazards due to their destructive damage to coastal regions.

Frequent and large tsunami hazards in the 21st century [Wang and Liu, ; Yeh et al., ; Fritz et al., ; Satake, ; Leonard and Bednarski, ; Lagos and Fritz, ] motivated the effort to improve the warning systems [e.g., Titov et al., ].Cited by: 7.

The editors saw the need for a book that would reach a broad range of readers who were not actively or directly engaged in natural disasters relief or mitigation planning, but who were in decision-making positions that provided an open window for addressing natural disaster issues.
