||Review of Day 1 (Zhang and Yeh)
||Session 5 - Tsunami Models 3
Boussinesq Model (Zhou)
||Session 6 - Comparisons for Baseline Problem (Zhang)
||How far tsunami can penetrate through the river? Linear and nonlinear
shallow-water wave models, and Boussinesq models
||Session 7 - Sensitivity in Friction Effects (Yeh)
||What would the reasonable friction factor be?
Should it be changed based on the water level?
If so, how?
||Session 8 - Sensitivity in Tidal Effects
||Ebb vs. spring tides - How much does the tidal condition make difference in
tsunami runup along the river?
||Session 9 - Other discussion and future
research plans (Yeh)
