About this book

Derived from the 1999 International Tsunami Symposium, this volume presents a unique look at the state of tsunami research at the end of the 20th century. It displays recent progress both in data recovery and reconstructions of historical tsunamis and in detail examination of recent disasters. The papers range from descriptive texts for the non-specialists to fairly technical discussions for those familiar with tsunami research.
