Mathematical and computational modeling plays an important role in
many aspects of risk mitigation for tsunamis and other hazardous geophysical flows (flooding, landslides and debris flows). Modeling these phenomena accurately and efficiently requires specialized numerical methods and software, as they present unique computational challenges. For instance, with tsunami modeling, the vastly different spatial
scales between propagation over the ocean and the study of a small
region of the coast makes the use of adaptive mesh refinement
