Tsunamis: Generation, Propagation and Shore Interaction
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
City:Toronto, ON
School:Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute
Abstract:Theories explaining seismological tsunami generation, propagation and shore interaction were reviewed in detail. These were applied to the 2004 Sunda-Trench tsunami to determine characteristics such as wave speed, wave height, wavelength, run-up height and velocity. A basic model of a tsunami was effected to demonstrate established theory.
