Tsunami Modelling and Inundation Mapping for Greater Vancouver

Description:AECOM, in collaboration with Applied Research International LLC, provided consulting services for modeling of tsunami run–up elevations and inundation limits for the entire coastline of the Capital Regional District (CRD), located at the south end of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. This presentation will provide the objectives, methods, and findings of the work, which included colour-coded maps showing water level, velocities and tsunami arrival times as well as a Tsunami Hazard Line completed for the entire CRD coastline that will be used by public safety professionals for emergency planning.
