Finite Volume Methods and Adaptive Refinement for Global Tsunami Propagation and Local Inundation

  title={Finite Volume Methods and Adaptive Refinement for Global Tsunami Propagation and Local Inundation},
  author={David L. George and Randall J. LeVeque},
The shallow water equations are a commonly accepted approximation governing tsunami propagation. Numerically capturing certain features of local tsunami inundation requires solving these equations in their physically relevant conservative form, as integral conservation laws for depth and momentum. This form of the equations presents challenges when trying to numerically model global tsunami propagation, so often the best numerical methods for the local inundation regime are not suitable for the… CONTINUE READING
