About this book

The Sixteenth International Tsunami Symposium, TSUNAMI `93, drew more than 150 scientists, engineers and specialists in tsunami research and disaster mitigation from 13 countries. The leading contributions to the symposium, selected after a rigorous reviewing process, are presented here under three broad headings: Tsunami Generation, Propagation and Inundation - Their Prediction and Simulation; Tsunami Disasters - Their Prevention and Mitigation; and Tsunami Observations, and Warning Systems and Plans for Improvement. This book is intended for scientists, engineers and graduate students interested in the prediction of earthquakes and tsunamis, tsunami disasters and their prevention and mitigation. It may also be of interest to professionals in the field of coastal management and protection.
