This special issue aims at collecting papers about tsunami science in a broader sense, promoting a multidisciplinary approach in the study of this natural phenomenon and focusing on

• tsunamigenic source processes (earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, or atmospheric disturbances);
• geological and geophysical characterization of tsunami sources;
• numerical modelling (e.g., tsunami generation and propagation, dynamic seismic rupture simulations);
• experimental modelling and analysis (e.g. material properties of incoming sediments to the trench);
• reconstruction of historical tsunamigenic events;
• tsunami hazard, vulnerability, and risk assessment;
• tsunami early warning.

A special welcome is extended to multidisciplinary contributions covering any of the aforementioned aspects, encompassing field data, geophysical models, regional hazard studies, observation databases, numerical and experimental modelling, risk studies, real-time networks, operational tools, and procedures towards a most efficient warning.

Papers should be submitted through the NHESS web site

During the registration process it is important that you select the correct special issue on the website.

The deadline for submitting is May 31, 2022, but earlier submissions are appreciated

We remind you that NHESS is an online journal that allows very quick publication of high quality papers and that each paper will be immediately published after its acceptance, with no need to wait that all papers of the special issue will be ready for publication.

Hoping you will take advantage of the chance offered by NHESS,
