Abstract

The present paper reports a preliminary result of searching tsunami-affected area using recent advances of GIS analysis and remote sensing combined with a numerical modeling of tsunami propagation/inundation and world population database. Applying the method of searching tsunami affected area to the 2009 Samoa earthquake tsunami and the 2010 Chilean earthquake tsunami, the potential tsunami affected area have been detected at some coastal cities/communities. The results are utilized to detecting tsunami impacted area for conducting disaster relief activities.
