We have now posted the hypothetical initial sea level deformation and the necessary bathymetry data; you can retrieve from "Download inout bathymetry and topography data" at our website: . (The coastal bathymetry data were extracted from NGDC Coastal Relief model and the initial sea-surface deformation data were in the format of longitude/latitude/uplift.) This exercise is an option to our main problem. The workshop still focuses on tsunami hydrodynamics in the Columbia river itself for a given hypothetical boundary condition at the river mouth. The foregoing option is for those of you who may wish to explore sensitivity associated with the initial conditions for this hypothetical situation.
Again and again, we wish to emphasize that this workshop aims at the exploration of tsunami physics in 'a' large river. The Columbia River is used for our convenience. We believe that this first exercise at the workshop should provide critical guidelines for the simulations of more practical tsunami inundations along the 'real' Columbia River.
Would you please let me know if you need a travel support for attending this workshop, especially for hose of you who are working on the workshop problem.
I thank you for your contribution always.
