Modeling and Simulating Tsunamis with an Eye to Hazard Mitigation

May 17, 2011

Asked by SIAM News for a survey of the current state of mathematical/computational aspects of tsunami modeling and simulation, based mainly on sessions at the SIAM Conference on Mathematical & Computational Issues in the Geosciences (Long Beach, California, March 21–24), Jörn Behrens (University of Hamburg) and Randy LeVeque (University of Washington) quickly responded with the following article, along with some early simulation results (see Figures 1 and 2).
