Abstrakt

Tsunamis are potential hazards in most of the world, (Figure 1), but risks are higher in areas associated with close and direct proximity to high seismic activity areas in marine and coastal areas, such as Indonesia, Japan, Chile, Peru, and SIDS (small island developing states) (UNISDR, 2009) (Figure 2). They generally hit in relatively limited areas: the coastal zone - up to few kilometres inland from the shore.
