Numerical modelling of the propagation of tsunami waves in the crimean peninsula shelf zone

Numerical modelling of the propagation of tsunami waves in the crimean peninsula shelf zone The paper analyses the effect of non-linearity and bottom friction on propagation of tsunami-type surface waves from the abyssal part of the Black Sea towards the shelf zone. The study relies, on numerical solution of unidimensional non-linear equations for long waves, using the finite-difference technique. Numerical experiments have been conducted for the bottom profile continental slope and shelf, with the full wave reflection being prescribed at a 10-m depth contour. It has been shown that the major role in transforming solitary waves belongs to non-linear topographic factors rather than to dissipation. The reflected wave has been found to be non-linearly distorted, and wave heights in the Black Sea coastal zone have been found to increase by many times. Physical Oceanography Springer Journals
