This book presents the frontiers of tsunami science and research and demonstrates the unprecedented progress achieved during this period overviewing different aspect of tsunami science including meteorological tsunamis.

The two 1992 events near Nicaragua and Flores Island, Indonesia, marked the beginning of a “modern tsunami science era” producing highly destructive tsunamis and opened a 25-year period of numerous devastating events, including two of the most destructive natural disasters in recent human history: the 26 December 2004 Sumatra and the 11 March 2011 Tohoku tsunamis. The book is of interest to scientists and practitioners as well postgraduate students in geophysics, oceanography and coastal engineering, involved in all aspects of tsunamis, from earthquake source processes to transoceanic wave propagation, from coastal impacts to hazard assessment and combining recent case studies with advances in tsunami science and natural hazards mitigation.



Utku Kânoglu is Professor at the Department of Engineering Sciences, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey. He holds a Ph.D. from the Tsunami Research Center, University of Southern California. He is actively involved with all aspects of tsunami research including numerical, laboratory and ?eld studies, with an emphasis on analytical solutions, leading to forecasting, hazard assessment, and mitigation and planning.

Yuichiro Tanioka is currently Professor at the Faculty of Science, Hokkaido University, Japan. He is also Member of earthquake research committees of the Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion in Japan. He was Director of the Institute of Seismology and Volcanology at Hokkaido University until 2018. He was also Vice-President of the Seismological Society of Japan until 2017. He is interested in research on tsunami generation mechanism, source processes of great earthquakes, and development of tsunami early warning techniques.

Emile A. Okal is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at Northwestern University. He is a Seismologist with a specialization in tsunamis and the origin of deep earthquakes. He holds a Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology.

Maria Ana Baptista is Professor at Instituto Politécnico de Lisboa and Invited Professor at Universidade de Lisboa. She holds a Ph.D. in Physics—Geophysics of the University of Lisbon. Her research interests are tsunamis and natural hazards. She was Vice-Chair of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group of IOC UNESCO for the implementation of the Tsunami Early Warning System in the period 2007–2011 and involved actively in the implementation of the Portuguese Tsunami Warning System. She coordinated the FP7 project on tsunamis—ASTARTE (Assessment Strategy and Risk Reduction for Tsunamis in Europe).

Alexander B. Rabinovich, Ph.D., is Research Scientist at both the Tsunami Laboratory, Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia, and at the Institute of Ocean Sciences, Sidney, BC, Canada. His research interests include tsunamis, sea level variations, seiches, tides, wave dynamics of shelf and coastal regions, and time series analysis.
