Simulation of the Tsunami That Struck Japan

This type of simulation is quite rare. Only researchers from NOAA (U.S. Agency study of the ocean and atmosphere) have carried out such simulations in the days that followed the tsunami.In Europe, UCL is one of the only universities to have achieved this kind of simulation. The SLIM model (for Second-generation Louvain-la-Neuve Icean Ocean Model) used for simulation can take into account a wide range of scales and thus simulate the interaction of the tsunami at a scale of few kilometers, well its spread across the Pacific Ocean with the scale of several thousand kilometers.
