Abstract: The problem of the tsunami wave runup on a beach of constant slope is discussed in the framework of rigorous solutions of the one-dimensional nonlinear shallow-water theory. The key and novel moment here is the analysis of influence of initial wave shape on extreme (maximal) characteristics of the wave on a beach (runup and drawdown heights, runup and drawdown velocities and breaking parameter)

Subject Headings: Wave runup | Tsunamis | Wave velocity | Beaches | Drawdown (hydrology) | Nonlinear analysis | Frames | Slopes |
