Summary

Based on conservative assumptions this paper proposes the hydrodynamic model of occurrence and distribu-tion of a tsunami. Using numerical simulation authors have established possibility to reach a wave height of 15 m off the Fukushima-Daiichi coast when the reduced factor of hydrodynamic resistance is 1,8. According to the developed model, flooding possibility is defined by a site level, earthquake intensity and distance, and duration of seismic impacts, conditions of energy dissipation, the sizes of epicentre and other factors.
Keywords: flooding, tsunami, earthquake, hydrodynamic model.
