A global Perspective on Increased Tsunami- Risk Caused by Current Urban Growth

This research tests the hypothesis that current urban growth and urbanisation are exacerbating Tsunami- related risk for loss of life, assets and infrastructure. Many cities are growing rapidly; if appropriate mitigation measures are disregarded, this could elevate the risk to life and infrastructure caused by Tsunami events.
