CoE ChEESE is organizing the Tsunami and Meteo-Tsunami Modelling Training Course on 13-14 May 2024. The objective of the course is to equip the participants with the necessary knowledge and numerical tools to perform mathematical modeling and numerical simulations of tsunamis and meteo-tsunamis. The course will commence with a brief theoretical overview of the processes and mechanisms responsible for these natural events. Following that, the participants will use the European flagship code, Tsunami-HySEA, to simulate various tsunami and meteo-tsunami events. This code solves the 2D shallow water equations on hydrostatic and dispersive versions using a high-order Finite Volume discretization (hydrostatic) with Finite Differences for the dispersive version on two-way structured nested meshes in spherical coordinates. Additionally, the participants will be introduced to Meteo-HySEA, which is a version of the Tsunami-HySEA code that can include meteorological forcing such as atmospheric pressure and wind stress as input, more precisely as boundary conditions.
