Modeling and mapping of Tsunami along Indian coast as a part of the early tsunami and storm surge warning system

The tsunami of the recent past has put into perspective the need for assessing tsunami hazard in vulnerable coastal areas of India. Following the disastrous tsunami in the Indian Ocean on December 26th 2004, the Ministry of Earth Sciences initiated action towards setting up of the Tsunami Warming System at INCOIS, Hyderabad. As a part of this warning system ICMAM-PD was entrusted with the task of modeling and mapping of vulnerability of coastal areas to tsunami hazard for the entire Indian Coastline.
