This chapter summarizes tsunami generation and propagation. Also, we mention topics that we did not fully treat in this book but that are important for tsunami studies. The physics underlying tsunami has not yet been fully elucidated. Continuing this challenging research is important both for the advancement of natural science and for disaster prevention.
