The Tsunami Research Facility offers researchers a unique facility for the study of earthquake and landslide generated tsunami waves and their impact on nearshore and coastal environments.
Those processes include:
- tsunami-structure interaction
- tsunami inundation and overland flow
- tsunami debris flow and scour
- landslide generated tsunamis
- harbor resonance
As a shared-use site, the facility also supports academic and industrial research on coastal engineering infrastructure and nearshore processes.
