Short summary
Tsunamis are natural phenomena that may cause great destruction when they reach coastal areas. This study focuses on establishing a connection between technical and scientific tsunami risk assessment and disaster risk reduction. The ultimate goal is to reduce the consequences that a tsunami may have in tsunami prone communities, focusing on prevention and preparedness strategies, through the generation and application of useful tsunami-risk management tools. The work has focused on Oman.
