National Tsunami Hazard Model

This dataset defines the maximum expected tsunami height (maximum amplitude) for return periods of 100, 500 and 2500 years at the 50th and 84th percentile of confidence, as estimated by the model described in Power (2013). The dataset also defines the coastal sections that were used for this modelling. The maximum expected tsunami heights are presented for each of these coastal sections. Please note that the maximum expected tsunami height will typically only occur at one location within each coastal section. It is a conservative (pessimistic) assumption if this height is used throughout the section. DOI: Cite as: GNS Science. (2013). National Tsunami Hazard Model - 2013. GNS Science.
