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.
