  Name: NOAA NGDC Global Historical Tsunami Event and Runup Databases
  Abbreviation: NOAA-TSUDB
  Description: NOAA / NGDC and the co-located World Data Center have compiled a unique set of tsunami-related products as part of a continuing program to support the interests of engineers, oceanographers, seismologists, and the general public. The Global Historical Tsunami Database provides information on tsunami source events and locations where effects from tsunamis were observed world wide. It contains events from 2000 B.C. to the present including source location, date, and time, event magnitude, maximum water height, total number of deaths, injuries and damage for the event. Runup information includes arrival date and time, travel time, maximum water heights, horizontal inundation distances, deaths, injuries, and damage for specific locations. Runups are also related to appropriate instrumental tide gauge and tsunameter data. The NOAA/NGDC Tsunami databases can also be displayed and extracted with an Interactive Web Map or displayed with Google Earth by downloading the KML file updated nightl
