Mapping and Modeling Outcomes

Summary

Mapping and modeling outcomes concern efforts to define areas with potential tsunami hazard for
emergency preparedness and other uses. The NTHMP has provided states funding to develop these
products. Specifically, maps that provide emergency management agencies the necessary input to create
evacuation maps and plans. With funding provided by the NTHMP, plans are in place to create
inundation maps for most highly threatened communities (as defined by the states) along the U.S. west
coast, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico by the end of 2013. All new maps will meet NTHMP-developed
guidelines (http://nthmp.tsunami.gov/modeling_guidelines.html), and the underlying models will meet
NOAA modeling standard.
