Title: The 2010 Chile Earthquake: Rapid Assessments of Tsunami
Title of journal: EOS
Series/Report no.: 35/91 (2010)
Publisher: AGU
Issue Date: 31-Aug-2010
Keywords: tsunami potential
real-time monitoring
Abstract: After an earthquake underwater, rapid real-time assessment of earthquake parameters is important for emergency response related to infrastructure damage and, perhaps more exigently, for issuing warnings of the possibility of an impending tsunami. Since 2005, the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) has worked on the rapid quantification of earthquake magnitude and tsunami potential, especially for the Mediterranean area. This work includes quantification of earthquake size from standard moment tensor inversion, quantification of earthquake size and tsunamigenic potential using P waveforms, and calculation of an archive of readily accessible tsunami scenarios.
