  1. Tsunami Hydrodynamics in the Columbia River

    On 11 March 2011, the Tohoku Tsunami overtopped a weir and penetrated 49 km up the Kitakami River, the fourth largest river in Japan. Similarly, the 2010 Chile tsunami propagated at least 15 km up the Maule...

  2. Tsunami!: know what to do on the Oregon coast


    Title from PDF caption (viewed on January 3, 2017).

  3. Review of guidelines for the design of tsunami vertical evacuation buildings

    Tsunamis have the potential to inflict severe damage and loss of life in coastal communities. Structures known as vertical evacuation buildings provide an alternative evacuation site for communities living in...

  4. Source and characteristics of the tsunami observed along the coast of the Pacific Northwest on March 28, 1964

    The physical linkage between oceanic earthquakes and most

  5. Tsunami propagation in large rivers : idealized cases and the Columbia River Estuary

    The hazards associated with tsunamis are well known and have been studied for decades. The majority of research is, however, focused on open coastlines which bear the brunt of a tsunamis force. Other regions...

  6. Simulated tsunami inundation for a range of Cascadia megathrust earthquake scenarios at Bandon, Oregon, USA

    To the best of our knowledge, one or more authors of this paper were federal employees when contributing to this work. This is the publisher’s final pdf. The published article is copyrighted by the Geological...

  7. Delayed Survey of the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami in the Former Exclusion Zone in Minami-Soma, Fukushima Prefecture

    This is an author's peer-reviewed final manuscript, as accepted by the publisher. The published article is copyrighted by Springer and can be found at: http://link.springer.com/journal/24

  8. Development of a guideline for estimating tsunami forces on bridge superstructures

    Infrastructures along the Oregon Coast are vulnerable to seismic events in the Cascadia Subduction Zone that could generate large tsunamis. Bridges along the coast are an important part of the transportation...

  9. Tsunami-induced Soil Instability

    Recent tsunami field surveys from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami have recorded numerous examples of tsunami-induced soil instability: significant scour around foundations, foundation failure...

  10. Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Assessment at Seaside, Oregon, for Near- and Far-Field Seismic Sources

    The first probabilistic tsunami flooding maps have been developed. The methodology, called probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment (PTHA), integrates tsunami inundation modeling with methods of probabilistic...
