Waves in shallow water, with emphasis on the tsunami of 2004
This conference was organized in response to the 2004 tsunami, which killed nearly 300,000 people in coastal communities around the Indian Ocean. We can expect more tsunamis in the future, so now is a good time to think carefully about how to prepare for the next tsunami. With that objective, this paper addresses three broad questions about tsunamis.
