Edwards Distinguished Lecture Series: On Long Wave Runup

Come hear from the distinguished Professor Dr.Harry Yeh who will be giving a lecture about Tsunami-hazard mitigations and understanding the effectiveness of nonlinear long-wave runup as a solution to predict a tsunami’s fluid force. Future research and perspectives of this work will also be discussed. 

He will be joined by two guest speakers: Costas Synolakis a professor at the University of Southern California who specializes in natural hazards tsunami and flooding, and Philip Liu a professor at the National University of Singapore. His research focus in ocean bathymetry measurement errors and their effects on the tsunami hazard. 

About Dr. Yeh: he has been at OSU since 2003 and was previously a faculty at UW from 1983-2002. He earned his A.B. in Economics at Keio Gijuku University, B.S. and M.S. at WSU, and his PhD at U.S. Berkeley.  Harry’s primary research contribution is on coastal effects of tsunamis. Past editor of ASCE Journal of Waterway, Port, Coastal, and Ocean Engineering, Harry has received the JDR award, Edwards Chair, the Hamaguchi Award, and 2021 ASCE Moffatt-Nichol Harbor and Coastal Engineering Award.

Open to Everyone! A reception will follow the lecture in the Kearney Atrium.
