The conference will comprise a broad range of meteotsunami topics, sorted in several sessions:
- Meteotsunami observations
- Atmosphere-ocean modelling for meteotsunamis
- Physics of meteotsunamigenic disturbances
- Atmosphere-ocean interactions and ocean processes
- Climatology of meteotsunamis
- Meteotsunamis forecasting and developing early warning system
- Hazard and risk assessment and socio-economic aspects
The conference will close with a round table, during which all aspects of meteotsunami research and meteotsunami-related future activities will be discussed. This will include
- discussing standards for meteotsunami observations and modelling
- discussing ways for creation of efficient early-warning systems
- creation of a framework (informal/formal network) for future collaborations
- making meteotsunami research more visible in tsunami community and in public, and other.
There will be a full-day excursion on the last day of the conference (11 May 2019). Details to be announced later.
We plan to have special issue in high-quality peer-review journal, to be announced on the conference, where a collection of papers coming out of the conference presentations (but not restricted to) will be published.
