Indian Ocean tsunami simulation

Cornell University has issued a video simulation of the 26 December tsunami. This was created using a numerical model called the Cornell Multigrid Coupled Tsunami model, developed by Philip Liu.

Based on earthquake data and information about the sea floor from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the model calculates the elevation of the sea surface at a series of grid points over a period of time.
