Global science of meteotsunamis: from planetary to mesoscale processes (GLOMETS)

The GLOMETS proposal aims to advance the knowledge on both planetary meteotsunami events and local weather-generated sea level oscillations, gathering all available measurements and numerical tools in researching: (1) global meteotsunami hazards from explosive volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts, (2) meteotsunami hazards at the sub-kilometre scale from both weather- and explosive volcano-induced events, (3) reproducibility of meteotsunami hazard by climate models, for their eventual assessment in the future climate, (4) eventual optimization and improvement of the meteotsunami monitoring, and (5) developing stochastic techniques for meteotsunami uncertainty quantification.
