PO004:
Meteotsunami Causes and Formation, Recent Events, and Forecast-Warning Systems


Session ID#: 28585

Session Description:
Meteotsunamis, tsunami-like waves induced by moving atmospheric perturbations in barometric pressure and/or wind, can pose serious hazards on ocean coasts and the Great Lakes. Recent efforts have led to a better understanding of the causes behind meteotsunami formation and amplification, as well as documented recent events and the frequency of occurrence in certain regions. Effort is also placed in development of forecast-warning systems for meteotsunami waves based on detection, atmospheric conditions, and hydrodynamic forecasts. This session invites topics related to understanding of meteotsunami causes and formations, processes behind recent events, and progress and effort in developing a meteotsunami forecast and warning system. We encourage submissions from theoretical studies, atmospheric modeling, hydrodynamic-wave modeling, sensor development or experimental studies, and big-data approaches.
