The scenarios account for a wide range of return times in terms of tsunami amplitudes. This dataset will allow us to build a probabilistic interface to the platform, which will be consistent with the ASCE 7-16 tsunami design maps, and could potentially be used in the application of ASCE 7-16 for engineering purposes.
