The Indian Ocean Tsunami on 26 December 2004 affected Sri Lanka, which is located 1,700 km from the epicenter. A field investigation was conducted along the southwest coast of Sri Lanka to measure tsunami trace heights, investigate the damage, and obtain correct information on the tsunami. The results of the field survey showed that the tsunami arrived on the southwest coasts two and a half hours or more after the earthquake. The average tsunami height was 5 m along the southwest coast and… Expand

Nationwide Post Event Survey and Analysis of the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake Tsunami
At 14:46 local time on March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake occurred off the coast of northeast Japan. This earthquake generated a tsunami that struck Japan as well as various locations aroundExpand
The impact of hydraulic bores and debris on free standing structures
As tsunami waves travel towards the shoreline, they may break offshore and runup the shore as a hydraulic bore. Recorded videos from the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami show that tsunami wavesExpand
A deterministic analysis of tsunami hazard and risk for the southwest coast of Sri Lanka
Abstract This paper describes a multi-scenario, deterministic analysis carried out as a pilot study to evaluate the tsunami hazard and risk distribution in the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. TheExpand

Observations by the International Tsunami Survey Team in Sri Lanka
TLDR
The conclusion stresses the importance of education: Residents with a basic knowledge of tsunamis, as well as an understanding of how environmental modifications will affect overland flow, are paramount to saving lives and minimizing tsunami destruction. Expand
