Location Puerto Rico Seismic Network, Puerto Rico Seismic Network Call Box 900, Mayaguez, United States
Short Title ComMIT Training
Summary The Third Session of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Tsunami and Other Coastal Hazards Warning System for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (ICG/CARIBE EWS-III) held in Panama City, 12-14 March, 2008 recommended to develop capabilities for modeling tsunami events through holding a Workshop on ComMit (NOAA’s MOST model). In the above framework, the Puerto Rico Seismic Network (PRSN), Univeristy of Puerto Rico Mayaguez,,will host a Community Model Interface for Tsunami (ComMIT) Training Workshop. ComMIT is an interface for NOAA’s propagation/inundation tsunami code, MOST, and the training will be provided by personnel of the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research. The 3-day course will include the preparation and pre-processing of the computational grids (three) and how to use the MOST code to prepare inundation maps based using pre-computed sources in the Caribbean region.
