Project Details

The research will employ a range of numerical stimulation models to model the generation, propagation and run-up of tsunamis generated by submarine landslides off the Great Barrier Reef region and explore their impact along the eastern seaboard of Australia. Where significant inundation of low-lying coastal areas (and assets) occurs, the PTVA model will be applied to assess the vulnerability of the impacted built environment.
