Propagation of the June 23, 2001 Peru Tsunami:
Preliminary MOST Model Results
Tsunami source with revised CMT solution explains amplitudes at Hilo, HI
|Model:||MOST propagation model in spherical coordinate (Titov & Gonzalez,1997; Titov & Synolakis, 1998). Due to coarse grid resolution, only offshore wave propagation is modeled. Solid wall boundary conditions are set at 50m depth.|
|Bathymetry:||Derived from Smith & Sandwell 2min data. Resolution of the computational grid is variable.It is ~6min near equator and becomes finer when moving south.|
|Source:||CMT solutions from Harvard and USGS were used|
