Mapping and Modeling Subcommittee

The Mapping and Modeling Subcommittee brings together expertise on modeling and mapping of tsunami hazards. The MMS develops, standardizes, and improves tools that show how tsunamis could affect people and property. Examples of these tools, which are used for emergency and community planning, include tsunami inundation (flooding) and evacuation maps that show who and what is at risk.

Models that Meet Defined Criteria for NTHMP Modeling and Mapping

Based on TWEA Sec 5 C(1) text that reads: "...use inundation models that meet a standard of accuracy defined by the Administration to improve the quality and extent of inundation mapping, including assessment of vulnerable inner coastal and nearshore areas, in a coordinated and standardized fashion to maximize resources and the utility of data collected;..."
