Assessment of tsunami threat to Sri Lanka from potential mega-thrust earthquakes in the Arakan subduction zone
Journal of the National Science Foundation of Sri Lanka
This paper describes a numerical study carried out to assess the threat posed to Sri Lanka by potential tsunamigenic earthquakes in the Arakan subduction zone in the northeastern Bay of Bengal. The fault plane model adopted in the present simulations corresponds to a moment magnitude of M w = 8.8, which may be considered as a worst-case scenario. A hydrodynamic model based on linear shallow-water equations was employed to simulate tsunami propagation from the source to the shoreline around Sridoi:10.4038/jnsfsr.v38i2.2042 fatcat:mn36jsgsxncrljcuufimxozsye
