This report provides a review and discussion of existing scientific and technical reports related to tsunami hazard assessment, and organizes the information in the form of a “Template Tsunami Hazard Assessment (THA).” This provides a general scientific and technical framework that can serve as a starting point for the development of improved and more detailed procedures to guide Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reviews of applications to build and operate nuclear power plants.
