Tsunami Engineering Laboratory
Disaster Control Research Center
Graduate school of Engineering
The TEL aims to develop integrated technologies for reducing tsunami disaster, including: 1) developing early warning systems to alert coastal residents, 2) implementing and maintaining an awareness/educational program on the indicators of tsunami dangers through databases, computer graphics and the results of field investigations, and 3) producing tsunami hazard maps to identify areas susceptible to flooding/inundation.
We think, that for good relationship of human being with the nature, we essentially need to understand the natural phenomena and find out a proper coexitence of human on the earth. We intend to carry out the interdisciplinary research on the nature and through the tsunami study.
