attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Non-hydrostatic Evolution of Ocean WAVEs (NEOWAVE) regional tsunami model for the southeast coast of Hawaii Island in the State of Hawaii, including Halape, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and Kalapana. Provides a nearshore hazard map of inundation based on the 1975 Kalapana tsunami. Data are gridded at approximately 30-m resolution referenced to the WGS84 coordinate system and use a vertical datum of mean sea level (MSL). This shock-capturing, dispersive wave model computes tsunami generation, propagation, and inundation for complex flow patterns in shelf and reef environments. It has been validated with analytical, laboratory, and field benchmarks and is approved by the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program. These hazard maps cover tsunamis only; other potential hazards such as wind waves and swells would be additive to the inundation described by these data.
