Abstract

In the Colombian Caribbean there has been no significant progress on the study of the tsunami threat, due to the low seismic activity that occurs in this area. However, according to historical records, it is not exempt from the occurrence of this type of natural phenomena that can cause economic losses and human lives. For this reason, in the present investigation the numerical simulation of seven tsunami generating seismic scenarios located in the Caribbean Sea was performed, using the COMCOT numerical model, obtained from a deterministic approach, in order to generate the flood scenarios by tsunami for the city of Cartagena.
