Short summary
We present a database of pre-calculated tsunami waveforms for the entire Mediterranean Sea, obtained by numerical propagation of uniformly spaced Gaussian-shaped elementary sources for the sea level elevation. Based on any initial sea surface displacement, the database allows the fast calculation of full waveforms of coastal sites. The resulting product is suitable for different applications such as probabilistic tsunami hazard, tsunami source inversions and tsunami warning systems.
