<p>Field observations alone rarely offer a complete picture of a tsunami's nearshore impact, and they're useful mainly in areas where tsunamis have already hit. Tsunami modeling is thus crucial to understanding and preparing for tsunami inundation. Recent research offers compelling examples of how basic modeling approaches can enhance our understanding of tsunami generation and propagation.</p>
