Tsunami and Meteo-Tsunami Modelling

Date: 13-14 May 2024 (Two days) 

Time: 15:00-18:00

Location: Online

Cost: There is no registration fee


ChEESE Tsunami and Meteo-Tsunami Modelling Training Course aims to provide the participants with the knowledge and numerical tools required to perform the mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of tsunamis and meteo-tsunamis. A brief theoretical overview on the processes and mechanisms producing this kind of natural events will be first provided. Then, the European flagship code, Tsunami-HySEA, will be used to simulate various tsunami and meteo-tsunami events. Tsunami-HySEA solves the 2D shallow water equations on hydrostatic and dispersive versions. Based on a high-order Finite Volume (FV) discretisation (hydrostatic) with Finite Differences (FD) for the dispersive version on two-way structured nested meshes in spherical coordinates. Meteo-HySEA is a version of Tsunami-HySEA code able to include meteorological forcing (atmospheric pressure and wind stress) as input, more precisely as boundary conditions.

The training course will include an introduction to tsunami and meteo-tsunami modelling, the basics of the numerical code used and the required data. The course will also tackle pre-process and post-process strategies based on Python scripts.


A basic knowledge of Python is recommended (used in preprocessing and postprocessing scripts).

Learning Outcomes:

Participants will learn how to perform tsunami and meteo-tsunami simulations with real data and for high-resolution scenarios. In the case of tsunamis, nested grids and high-resolution inundation will be performed. These simulations can be performed in local GPUs or in HPC multi-GPUs infrastructures.
