In Proceedings of the International Tsunami Symposium 2001 (ITS 2001), NTHMP Review Session, R-2, Seattle, WA, 7–10 August 2001, (on CD-ROM), 29–54 (2001)

The U.S. National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program (NTHMP) was established in Fiscal Year 1997, and is now in its fifth year of operation. This report provides a review of NTHMP Inundation Mapping Program activities during the first 5 years, 1997–2001. Accomplishments include the establishment of a tsunami modeling infrastructure and the production of 19 inundation maps covering 88 coastal communities with an at-risk population estimated to be more than a million. In light of this success, the goal remains to provide every at-risk community with maps. The strategy for reaching this goal continues to evolve as a result of important lessons learned. A general plan and budget are presented for covering the remaining at-risk communities during the next 5-year period, 2002–2006.
