dc.description.abstract In the absence of earlier studies, an attempt is made to identify the vulnerable areas of the Indian coast for the damages due to Tsunami based on an earlier study reported in the context of sea level rise due to greenhouse effect. It is inferred that 12-18 degrees N stretch is safe on the west coast when compared with the other regions. 10-12 degrees N; 14-16 N and 20 degrees N on east coast and 9-10 degrees N; 21-24 degrees N on the west coast are most vulnerable for the damages due to tsunami and storm surges. This information is useful to evacuate people during Tsunami and storm surges.
