Abstract

The fate of the energy, momentum, and volume (or mass) of the leading-elevation N-type tsunami considering geophysical scale is studied. From the epicenter to the land the physical properties of the positive wave of tsunami are calculated using a second order depth integrated model. Not only the incident wave characteristics but also the scale and shape of bathymetry are very important for the propagation of tsunami physics.
