  • Abstract The main topic of this research is the impact to the tsunami-inundated area of the southeast coast of Taiwan caused by earthquakes. According to regression relationship (G-R relation) between the earthquake magnitude and frequency proposed by Gutenberg and Richter (1944), the expected number of tsunamigenic earthquake is estimated. Using the linear shallow water equations of COMCOT (COrnell Multigrid COupled Tsunami model), the propagation of tsunami in the ocean is simulated, and the reciprocal Green's function was applied to save the computing time of COMCOT model. Then, the seismic solution parameters are substituted to acquire a water level distribution of tsunami. Solitary waves of different wave height are used to compute the range and the probability of tsunami inundation at the southeast coast of Taiwan.
