COMCOT: A Tsunami Modeling Package

     

       Tsunami Generation                     Tsunami Propagation

        COMCOT (Cornell Multi-grid Coupled Tsunami Model) is a tsunami modeling package, capable of simulating the entire lifespan of a tsunami, from its generation, propagation and runup/rundown in coastal regions.

        Waves can be generated via incident wave maker, fault model, landslide, or even customized profile. Flexible nested grid setup allows for the balance between accuracy and efficiency.

        The model has been used to investigate several historical tsunami events, such as the 1960 Chilean tsunami, the 1992 Flores Islands (Indonesia) tsunami (Liu et al., 1994; Liu et al., 1995), the 2003 Algeria Tsunami (Wang and Liu, 2005) and more recently the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami (Wang and Liu, 2006).
