Tsunami Source

Course Description

To calculate travel time of tsunami some computer practices will be given. Basic concept to estimate a tsunami source area from arrival times of observed tsunami is explained. Hands-on practices to estimate tsunami source will be also given. In this practice, usage of Tsunami Travel Time (TTT) software and Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) are also introduced.
