Tsunami Hazard

Researchers in this group are focusing on providing information for tsunami mitigation by means of numerical simulations, physical modeling, and field survey. We use the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami as the reference for the studies. Previously, we developed scenarios for coastal land use planning for tsunami mitigation using the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami event and applied it at several coastal areas. We also estimated tsunami arrival times for tsunami prone cities in Indonesia, where the information could be useful to manage the city-wide evacuation mechanism. This research cluster also attempt to investigate the role of coastal forest, such as mangroves and casuarina, for mitigating impacts of tsunami waves.
