At the kind invitation of the Government of Australia, a Training Course on Tsunami Inundation Modelling will be held from February 05 to February 10, 2012 at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. The training is funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) with support from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and participation from the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
