After the disastrous tsunami of December 26, 2004 the need for a tsunami warning system was badly felt. The main component of a tsunami warning system is the prediction of inundation and run-up along a coastline which can only be accomplished through the effective use of numerical models. Numerical modelling will be carried out involving all different possible permutations and combinations of tsunamigenic earthquakes and the result of it in terms of inundation /run-up characteristics will be converted and updated into vulnerability maps. The state /district level disaster management centres accelerate the mitigation activities by referring to such maps.
