|01/01/2018 - 31/12/2020
|600 million VND
|Goal and objectives of the project
- Development of the near-field and far-field tsunami scenarios for earthquake information and tsunami warning purposes
|Novelty and actuality and scientific meaningfulness of the results
- Established a unified scaling law for earthquakes in Vietnam for both long-term and short-term seismic activities, allowing to link both Gutenberg-Richter's law, the Omori's law decay of triggered earthquakes and the fractal dimension faults.
|Products of the project
- Scientific papers in referred journals (list):
- Other products (if applicable):
Center for Earthquake information and Tsunami Early Warning, Institute of Geophysics, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology.
In the framework of the research project, it only stops at assessing the tsunami hazard based on scenarios, or in other words, this is a deterministic approach in tsunami research. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct a study on tsunami hazard assessment by the probabilistic method to have a comprehensive view of the tsunami hazard in Vietnam. The next step is to conduct a tsunami risk assessment and zoning for response and damage mitigation.
