Huntsville, Ala. ---- Physics researchers at Alabama A&M University have recently published an important chapter in a book on the phenomenon of the tsunami.

 

Drs. Arjun Tan and Mostafa Dokhanian, professors of Physics in the College of Engineering, Technology and Physical Sciences, have published a 34-page book chapter on Tsunami, along with graduate student Ashwith Chilvery and alumnus  Sihon Crutcher.

 

Edited by G. Lopez and published by Intech Publishers, the book is entitled “Tsunami."  In Chapter Six, “Tsunami Propagation Models,” the authors have constructed three propagation models and analyzed four of the greatest tsunami events in recorded history: (1) The great Chilean tsunami of 1960; the great tawaiian tsunami of 1975; (3) The great Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004; and (4) The great Japan tsunami of 2011.

 
MostafaDokhanian2Small.jpgDr. Dokhanian is the principal investigator of five grants totalingTanArjun.png
$12 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  Dr. Tan is Professor Emeritus of Physics and has some 350 publications to his credit, including two books.  

 

Ashwith Chilvery is a graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in physics and has already published 15 papers to date.  Dr. Crutcher is an AAMU graduate who is a senior scientist with the U.S. Army RD&E Command.
