Nonlinear tsunami generation mechanism

M. A. Nosov and S. N. Skachko

Abstract. The nonlinear mechanism of long gravitational surface water wave generation by high-frequency bottom oscillations in a water layer of constant depth is investigated analytically. The connection between the surface wave amplitude and the parameters of bottom oscillations and source length is investigated.
