In this paper we present the application of the ADER Discontinuous Galerkin method with an a-posteriori Finite-Volume limiter on the simulation of tsunamis. Goal is to obtain a method of high-order convergence in deep water areas while being able to handle wetting & drying at coast lines. Several adjustments of the original ADER-DG method are presented to preserve characteristics like the well-balanced property. We evaluate and confirm developed concepts by a series of numerical tests and present them in the context of reconstructed tsunamis.
