The Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Forecast Model Grids provides bathymetric data strictly for
tsunami inundation modeling with the Method of Splitting Tsunami (MOST) model. MOST
is a suite of numerical simulation codes capable of simulating three processes of
tsunami evolution: generation, transoceanic propagation, and inundation of dry land.
Tsunami waves are computationally propagated across a set of three nested grids (A,
B, and C), each of which is successively finer in resolution, moving from offshore
to onshore. Nearshore details are resolved to the point that model output can be directly
compared with tide gauge observations and can provide estimates of wave arrival time,
wave amplitude and simulation of wave inundation onto dry land. A Grid Resolution:
120 arcsec. B Grid Resolution: 18 arcsec. C Grid Resolution: 2 arcsec.
