Hi Sowmya 
Widely used code for Tsunami is TUNAMI N1, N2 and N3. It is in fortran. The following codes I know for Tsunami modelling. 
1. Tunami 
2. MOST/ COMMIT
3. COMCOT
4. MIRONE 
5. ANUGA 
All the above said codes are in Fortran.

Dear Sowmya
Did you try Mathlab? 
http://app.visiblegeology.com/profile.html has simple model for earthquake.
Thanks

I tried delft dashboard, because of some technical issue i couldn't install Delft Dashboard. its Matlab based software.

Before installing Delft Dashboard, make sure that you install the correct version of the Matlab Compiler Runtime (MCR) on your system.

Hello Sowmya
I suggest you Mirone, a matlab based software (open-source) to deal with grids and generate the initial condition.
For the tsunami modeling you can use Comcot.

Hi Sowmya.
Matlab is fine for president and post processing but for running simulations, especially if involving heavy calculations, you should better consider Fortan code. It's much more efficient and fast.
The name of a good open source code for tsunami modelling is CLAWPACK (standing for conservation law package) developed by Prof. Leveque. This open code, is continously been developed and improved. Some of the features are quite interesting: dynamic topography (if simulating a sudden underwater 'kick'), apadtative mesh refinement (mesh is refined by an user defined folding factor when and where water depth decreses)  and, quite recently, depth discretization formulations (improving greatly 5he breaking mechanism and thus wave run up). 
Have a look at the example section, there is a whole number of cases you can start from. The code is not really 'user friendly' but Fortran has never been. There also is a user forum which is simply great. Nice and helpful.people. along with the code there is also a very good book describing the code and the physics behind it. 
Happy modelling. 
M.

Apart from MIRONE, Delft3D, CLAWPACK and matlab scripts mentioned in above answers, you can also look at COMCOT (Cornell University) TUNAMI-N2 (Tohoku Uni); MOST (PMEL/NOAA); 
Once you have the tsunami initial surface elevation you can use any of the open source hydrodynamic numerical models to propagate the tsunami with reasonable accuracy. Best of luck..

@ Ranjit Das I have given a link here for TIME's project. You can get the code from there. The doc has TUNAMI N1,N2,N3 and F1, F2. 
You are welcome to discuss if you have any doubts in the contest. As said by Prasad Kumar Bhaskaran, you can try mirone as well, which is a GUI. You can get mirone from the link:

is there any open source software for landslide tsunami modeling ?
10th Mar, 2021
Siva Srinivas
Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services
Girish Jagad according to my idea there are no ready made models available for landslide tsunami modelling. You can use the existing numerical models provided you generate initial wave height due to landslide. You need to think a logic to achieve this. You may search for some articles related to this study to get few ideas.

Like so many, I am shocked and saddened at seeing war break out in Europe. My thoughts – and those of the ResearchGate team – are with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected.
ResearchGate is an international company, whose purpose is to enable scientists across the world to work together openly and collaboratively, regardless of borders or nationality. We have people from over 40 countries on our staff of around 200, and being based in Berlin, we are profoundly aware of the human cost of conflicts, the echoes of which have shaped and scarred our home city. We join with the international community in condemning the actions of the Russian state.
We have been asking ourselves: What can we do?
From today, we will offer free advertising space worth $2.5 million on our network to humanitarian organizations working to respond to the crisis. ResearchGate benefits from over 50 million visitors every month, and we hope this initiative can help raise funds and awareness for those organizations that are having direct impact and need support.
We also want to use our platform to highlight the response from the scientific community. Personally, I have found the messages of support from scientists everywhere to be truly heartfelt, and I would like to highlight some of the community initiatives I’ve seen here:
Additionally, I’m posting here some of the organizations responding to the crisis and actively soliciting donations:
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them.

What is InTech Open Science? A predatory or a ligitimate publisher?

  • Stephen Jia WangStephen Jia Wang
Dear friends colleagues, have you ever received an invitation to publish your work at InTech Open Science (https://www.intechopen.com/)? I have recently been invited to edit a new book title for them. I am usually suspicious with such invitations and must check the authenticity of the publisher first. Interestingly, they claim that they have published the work for two recent Nobel Laureates. Therefore, I would appreciate your experience and opinions regarding InTech Open Science.

Young researchers given TBM prognosis analysis thesis tasks by professors, with unintended errors made but not found by reviewers. Who is responsible?
Question
7 answers
  • Nick Ryland BartonNick Ryland Barton
There seems to be an increasing number of MSc or PhD studies by young students with little tunnelling or TBM experience. They compare numerous established prognosis methods, and regrettably make unintended mistakes, coming up with order-of-magnitude errors on AR and PR, maybe far beyond world records or practical possibilities. Since a consistent 5 to 6m/hr PR will exceed most conveyor capacities, why is there no reaction (from somewhere along the chain of responsibility) when the students find 20 to 30m/hr (or even larger) in their estimates? Who is responsible? Student, professor (likely a co-author), or journal reviewers and editors? A point of some importance is that the young students are likely reviewing established empirical methods now also used by others, and developed when those concerned had considerable TBM experience, so knew very well if they (the originators) were in any way justified in publishing in the first place. It should be clear that originator's reputations as perhaps reliable consultants are being ignored by the students and professors who are convinced of the validity of their studies. How can we eliminate these unfortunate publications before their gross PR and AR calculation errors are widely spread? Is there no self-doubt anymore, just youthful over-confidence, and regrettably sleeping reviewers without necessary experience.?
