Radiation of long waves from Black Sea seismic zones

  • S. F. Dotsenko
Thermohydrodynamics of the Ocean


The paper is concerned with analysis of tsunami wave refraction in the Black Sea, radiated from six seismic areas. Numerical results have been obtained on the basis of a radiation model for long wave propagation, with the sources of tsunamis being pointlike and distributed.
