Gloria I. Lopez Tsunami. Analysis of a Hazard: From Physical Interpretation to Human Impact ЕСТЕСТВЕННЫЕ НАУКИ. This multi-disciplinary volume compiles a collection of scientific papers showing the state-of-the-art of tsunami research at different levels.The various contributions cover an array of themes that span from geological evidence to post-trauma human care, encompassing pre-tsunami analyses and modeling to post-tsunami management and preparedness techniques.ContentsPrefaceSection 1 Preparedness, Emergency Response and Post-Trauma Care - The Human Aspect of a Tsunami1 Organisational and Individual Leadership Challenges During the Rescue Operation Following the 2004 Tsunami2 Acute Respiratory Care and Wound Care of Tsunami Patients: What Should the Nurses Do?3 Children and Adolescents-Survivors of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami: Prevalence of Long-Term PTSD and Coping StrategiesSection 2 Computational Models, Simulations and Early Warning Systems - The Modelling Aspect of a Tsunami4 The November, 1st, 1755 Tsunami in Morocco: Can Numerical Modeling Clarify the Uncertainties of Historical Reports?5 Generation and Propagation of Tsunami by a Moving Realistic Curvilinear Slide Shape with Variable Velocitie6 Tsunami Propagation Models Based on First Principles7 A New Approach to Short-Term Tsunami Forecasting8 A Warning System in Taiwan for South China Sea Tsunamis Using W Phase Inversion and Unit Tsunami MethodsSection 3 Geological, Biological and Chemical Evidence - The Physical Aspect of a Tsunami9 Ancient Cliffs and Modern Fringing Reefs: Coupling Evidence for Tsunami Wave Action10 Traces of Coral Bearing Deposits on Lanai.
