Welcome
to the TEL
Tsunami Engineering Laboratory

part of the
Disaster Control Research Center
Graduate school of Engineering
Tohoku University

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.
