Tsunami

View this topic in
A tsunami, also called a tsunami wave train, and at one time referred to as a tidal wave, is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, usually an ocean, though it can occur in large lakes. (Wikipedia.org)

Forecasting Earthquakes: The RELM Test

Computing in Science & Engineering, 2012

Earthquakes don't have precursors that can be reliably used for earthquake prediction. However, distributions of earthquakes (seismicity) can be used to forecast an earthquake hazard. These distributions in space, time, and magnitude can be studied in a variety of ways. The Regional Earthquake Likelihood Models (RELM) test compares the different approaches.

Loss mechanisms of thermal conduction, viscosity, and ion drag are considered in deriving the dispersion relation of the atmospheric gravity waves (AGWs). This model is then used to analyze the electron density perturbation in the ionosphere caused by the Sumatra tsunami on 26 December 2004. It is found that the AGWs move horizontally at the same speed with that of the tsunami and are trapped at about 400 km high. The simulation results well explain that about 13 min after the tsunami triggers AGWs, electron density perturbation in the ionosphere can be detected by satellites that pass over.

  • Installation method of high-quality seismic observation in the seafloor

    In seafloor seismic observation, the seismometer is usually installed in the seafloor. The data obtained from the seismometer installed in the seafloor is influenced by background noise. In seafloor observation, it is necessary to install seismometer with consideration of influence from installation environment for observation with high accuracy. This paper introduces the past results from seafloor seismic observation in several installation environments and a new approach to conduct high quality seismic observation in the seafloor.

  • GPR for disaster mitigation and beyond

    After the 3.11 East Japan Great Earthquake and Tsunami, we are planning to move houses to higher places. In this case, we have to carry out archaeological survey before the development, and we expect great amount of demand will be created. We think the high accuracy GPR measurement methodology (3DGPR) which we are developing will have very high potential for this solution. 3DGPR is capable for survey on uneven ground surface, which was very difficult by conventional GPR. However, from our experience for humanitarian demining by ALIS, we know even sparser data acquisition can reconstruct good images. Higher density data acquisition is not very effective since it is time consuming, and recently Compact Sensing (CS) is also investigated for GPR. We found that GPR high resolution imaging by CS can be applied to buried pipe detection.

  • Damage estimation of the Great East Japan earthquake with airborne SAR (PI-SAR2) data

    A 9.0-magnitude earthquake occurred off the pacific coast of Tohoku area of Japan, in March 2011. Accompanied with the subsequent tsunami, it caused a lot of casualties and damages in the coast area. We conducted urgent observations of the damaged areas with an airborne X-band SAR system, Pi-SAR2, immediately after the earthquake, on March 12 and the following dates. The Pi-SAR2 is a fully polarimetric airborne radar, with high spatial resolution of 0.3 m. We found the high resolution radar images, with multi-temporal observations, are quite useful to estimate the area flooded by the tsunami and its changes. Also found is capability of the polarimetric radar images to estimate the amount of a pile of debris that is one of the greatest concerns for the residents.

  • Development of Smartphone Application for Off-Line Use in Case of Disaster

    When large earthquakes occur, affected inhabitants lose access to phones and the Internet. To provide immediate assistance to disaster victims, we developed a disaster prevention application that is available off-line, and that has the following characteristics. 1) When communication infrastructures are damaged, the functions of the developed application work off-line. 2) During large-scale disasters, such as the Tokai earthquake and the resulting tsunami, users can examine the inundation range prediction of tsunamis and can read a suitable disaster prevention manual. 3) The developed application is compatible with common, portable devices. We developed an iPhone application and then conducted experiments to evaluate its usefulness. Next, based on the user feedback, we made improvements and then developed an Android application and subsequently evaluated it.

  • Coastal natural hazards analysis of risk exposures

    Historically, natural hazards have played a major role in directing coastal and waterfront development. During the past decade, the authors have been given a wake-up call by earthquakes in Kobe, Japan; Taiwan; and during the World Series in San Francisco; not to mention hurricanes such as Iniki in Hawaii, Hugo in South Carolina and Andrew in Dade County, Florida. Additional hazards include tsunamis, tornadoes, flooding, volcanoes and extreme winds. Coastal and waterfront infrastructure and development are typically more susceptible to damage and destruction from natural hazards than inland facilities. Because of this, higher limits of insurance coverage are desirable and sometimes mandated by lending institutes or bonding companies. Insurance premiums for waterfront and coastal facilities have skyrocketed due to the high risk of exposure. This paper will present a procedure to analyze the risk of waterfront and coastal facilities in relation to natural hazards such as hurricanes, tropical storms, floods, tornadoes, lightning, earthquakes, and extreme winds. The analysis will assist persons responsible for waterfront facilities, such as ports and marine terminals, in making sound decisions regarding levels of insurance coverage for various assigned risks. A case study is included.
