Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Oceanography
  • Seismology

His primary areas of study are Seismology, Bathymetry, Magnitude, Shore and Meteorology. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Current and Wind wave. The various areas that Costas E. Synolakis examines in his Bathymetry study include Risk analysis and Fluid mechanics.

His studies in Magnitude integrate themes in fields like Particle image velocimetry, Flow velocity, Direct linear transformation and Far East. His Shore study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cnoidal wave, Scale and Mathematical physics. His research in Meteorology intersects with topics in Geodesy, Computer simulation, Wave equation, Physical geography and Waves and shallow water.

His most cited work include:

  • The runup of solitary waves (702 citations)
  • Numerical Modeling of Tidal Wave Runup (405 citations)
  • Runup of solitary waves on a circular Island (346 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Costas E. Synolakis spends much of his time researching Seismology, Oceanography, Landslide, Field survey and Meteorology. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Magnitude, Submarine pipeline and Shore. His study brings together the fields of Far East and Magnitude.

His Oceanography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Structural basin and Tsunami wave. His Landslide study combines topics in areas such as Fault and Underwater. His studies in Tsunami earthquake integrate themes in fields like Seismic moment and Epicenter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (58.02%)
  • Oceanography (20.61%)
  • Landslide (13.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Seismology (58.02%)
  • Tsunami wave (8.40%)
  • Oceanography (20.61%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Seismology, Tsunami wave, Oceanography, Field survey and Meteorology. Costas E. Synolakis combines subjects such as Lagrangian coherent structures and Bathymetry with his study of Seismology. Costas E. Synolakis has included themes like Pacific ocean, Bay, Geophysics and Kinetic energy in his Tsunami wave study.

His work on Tide gauge and Shore as part of general Oceanography research is frequently linked to Vegetation and Source field, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Meteorology research incorporates themes from Wind wave model and Wave propagation. His work deals with themes such as Volcano, Structural basin, Seismic moment, Fault and Mantle, which intersect with Landslide.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development of MOST for Real-Time Tsunami Forecasting (42 citations)
  • The Fukushima accident was preventable. (38 citations)
  • The Fukushima accident was preventable. (38 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Oceanography
  • Mathematical analysis

Costas E. Synolakis mainly focuses on Seismology, Poison control, Oceanography, Warning system and Tsunami hazard. His work carried out in the field of Seismology brings together such families of science as Flow and Lagrangian coherent structures. His research investigates the connection between Oceanography and topics such as Tsunami wave that intersect with problems in Pacific ocean, Bay and Peninsula.

His Warning system research includes elements of Benchmark, Environmental resource management and Tsunami warning system. His research integrates issues of Meteorology, Plate tectonics and Crust in his study of Tsunami hazard. He interconnects Training, Emergency management and Forensic engineering in the investigation of issues within Subduction.
