JRC Tsunami Propagation Model 

A model for Tsunami propagation has been developed by JRC. The model allows to predict the propagation wave once the initial location of the earthquake is fixed.  The model, in contrast to other detailed 3d models, is extremely fast but sufficiently precise that can be integrated in the Global Disaster Alert System to give a first estimate should the conditions favour a Tsunami (magnitude > 7 and epicenter in a location under water).

An on-line procedure is available to calculate the Tsunami event.
