Tsunami model data released for entire Oregon coast

Posted: Friday, Jan 3rd, 2014

The Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) has released seven technical publications of value to scientists, engineers and emergency managers concerned with tsunami hazard mitigation.

The general public may be interested in the graphs and video animations simulating tsunami wave arrival times for specific areas on the coast. These digital data were used to create the latest generation of tsunami inundation and evacuation maps for Oregon, released over the past few years.

The new publications contain model output files of maximum tsunami wave elevations, velocities and flow depths at specific locations over the course of the entire simulation. They also include post-earthquake subsidence values, pre- and post-earthquake topography and more.
