A tsunami is a series of waves generated by an impulsive disturbance in a body of water such as a lake or ocean. The disturbance is typically a fault displacement. Less commonly, the displacement results from a landslide (into or below the water surface), volcanic activity, or rarely from a meteorite impact.

Although both are sea waves, a tsunami and a tidal wave are two different and unrelated phenomena. A tidal wave is a shallow water wave caused by the gravitational interactions between the Sun, Moon, and Earth.

The NOAA tsunami-forecasting system proved that it can accommodate these unusual events through inversion of real-time sea-level data recorded at the DART stations. The Kuril Islands tsunamis illustrated two wave characteristics that are important for estimating tsunami severity: preferential beaming of tsunami energy and site response.

Tsunami fragility (fragility curve, or fragility function) is a new measure, we propose, for estimating structural damage and fatalities due to tsunami attack, by integrating satellite remote sensing, field survey, numerical modeling, and historical data analysis with geographic information system (GIS).

Tsunami fragility is expressed as the structural damage probability or fatality ratio. There has been a significant increase in the number of peer-reviewed publications, critical reviews and searchable web-based databases, since the first substantial tsunami database for Australia was published in This review represents a complete reorganization and restructuring of previous work coupled with the addition of new data that takes.
