Three-dimensional numerical modeling of tsunami-related internal gravity waves in the Hawaiian atmosphere

Occhipinti, G; Coisson, P; Makela, J J; Allgeyer, Sebastien; Kherani, Alam; Hebert, H; Lognonne, P


The tremendous tsunami following the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake produced internal gravity waves (IGWs) in the neutral atmosphere and large disturbances in the. overlying ionospheric plasma while propagating through the Pacific ocean. To corroborate the tsunamigenic hypothesis of these perturbations, we use a 3D numerical modeling of the ocean-atmosphere coupling, to reproduce the tsunami signature observed in the airglow by the imager located in Hawaii and clearly showing the shape of the modeled...[Show more]
