Tsunami inundation modelling for Riverton and New River Estuary
GNS Science Consultancy Report - June 2011
Emergency Management Southland contracted GNS Science to undertake a tsunami inundation assessment for Riverton and New River Estuary. A scenario based approach is used in modelling the potential tsunami inundation through a set of tsunami scenarios potentially caused by both local and distant earthquake sources. These sources were defined based on available published literature (i.e. Berryman et al. 2005; Downes et al. 2005; Greenslade et al. 2007, 2009; Bathgate et. al. 2008; Oakal et al. 2006; Hayes et al. 2009 and Hayes and Furlong 2010).
