What is ELIMO ?

iRIC-ELIMO has been developed with a motto of ”simple and easy tsunami computation” for people with minimum knowledge to operate Window softwares, which is capable of reliable estimations of tsunami generation, propagation and evolution on coasts on easy-performable GUI environment provided by iRIC. 

A tsunami computation is a fundamental way to provide tsunami heights and arrival times along coasts for past and future earthquakes, which has been used for designing disaster prevention plans. The computations have been generally performed at high performance computers owned by Universities and research institutes, and commonly used by researchers and engineers who have scientific knowledge and experience of the numerical computation. 

There may be no computational tool that is accessible to the public. While the disaster prevention and evacuation plans for tsunami inundation are required to develop by local governments, they have no way to estimate the tsunami properties by their own human and computational resources. Under these background, we have tried to develop technologies for producing a compact and reliable software to compute tsunami for arbitrary earthquake, which is executable on home PC. We hope this tsunami software named ELIMO will be utilized for estimating the tsunami onsets in order to achieve disaster reduction and efficient evacuation.
