With use of modern computing power, advanced sensor networks and information technologies, a project is underway to establish a new system of real-time tsunami inundation forecasting, damage estimation, mapping and robust information dissemination to enhance society’s resilience in the aftermath of major tsunami disaster. The system consists of fusion of real-time crustal deformation monitoring/fault model estimation, high-performance real-time tsunami propagation/inundation modeling with Tohoku University’s vector supercomputer SX-ACE, damage/loss estimation model, geo-informatics and information technologies.
The results are disseminated as mapping products to responders and stakeholders, e.g. national and regional municipalities, to be utilized for their emergency/response activities. In 2014, the system is verified through the case studies of 2011 Tohoku event and potential earthquake scenarios along Nankai Trough with regard to its capability and robustness.
