Title Tsunamis -- A Model of Their Generation and Propagation
Creator Hammack, Joseph Leonard, Jr.
Description A general solution is presented for water waves generated by an arbitrary movement of the bed (in space and time) in a two-dimensional fluid domain with a uniform depth. The integral solution which is developed is based on a linearized approximation to the complete (nonlinear) set of governing equations. The general solution is evaluated for the {specific case of a uniform upthrust or downthrow of a block section of the bed; two time-displacement histories of the bed movement are considered....
