The basis of tsunami hazard assessment remains magnitude-geographical criteria. In this case, the tsunami alarm is announced by tsunami centers throughout the entire area of responsibility.

Calculations of tsunami wave height shows that the distribution of tsunami wave heights over the protected points is non-uniform and depends on the relative position of the earthquake source and the protected point. Taking into account the heterogeneity of the distribution of tsunami wave height and making a decision to declare a tsunami alarm individually for each protected point will reduce the number of false alarms. This project plans to use the example of the protected area of the Black Sea coast of Russia to develop a decision support system to declare a tsunami alarm, taking into account the peculiarities of the geographic location of the protected area.
