Characteristics of tsunami waves in the Black Sea according to the data of measurements

Characteristics of tsunami waves in the Black Sea according to the data of measurements We present the general description of tsunami waves in the Black Sea.

Abstract

We present the general description of tsunami waves in the Black Sea. The quantitative characteristics of four historical events are revised by using the digitized marigrams and their spectral analysis. As a rule, tsunami waves are characterized by the initial elevation of the sea level and the height of the first wave is not maximum. The maximum heights of the recorded tsunami waves at the points of observation do not exceed 52 cm. For the major part of points on the sea coast, we observe a noticeable trend toward the increase in the heights of waves with the magnitude of the earthquake. The typical periods of tsunami waves and background variations of the sea level lie within the intervals 8–39min and 28–193min, respectively.
