S. R. Singarasubramanian, M. V. Mukesh and K. Sujatha

Abstract—The coastal zone of Tamilnadu was worst affected by the December, 2004 Tsunami. Most of the east coast of Tamilnadu was affected by the tsunami waves. Except the region between Point Calimere and Thoothukudi were very meagerly affected. The rest of entire coastal region was affected along with the coastal communities. In some regions erosion was prominent with a large scale inundation and deposition was prominent in some places. The coastal dunes and river systems were completely altered.

Index Terms—Coastal morphology, Tsunami, Inundation.
