    66see Section \ref{sec:data}),

    1010\item computational requirements relating to the mesh construction.
    8080The final item to be addressed to complete the model setup is the
    81 definition of the boundary condition. As
    82 discussed in Section \ref{sec:methodology}, a Mw 9 event provides
    83 the tsunami source. The resultant tsunami wave is made up of a series
    84 of waves with different amplitudes which is affected by the energy
    85 and style of the event as well as the bathymetry whilst it travels
    86 from its source to Dampier. The amplitude and velocity of each of these
    87 waves are then provided to ANUGA as boundary conditions and propagated
    88 inshore.
     81definition of the boundary condition. The tsunami source in this
     82study is given as an initial condition, as opposed to a boundary
     83condition to studies when the tsunami is generated by an undersea
     84earthquake. Hence, the boundary conditions for this model will
     85be Dirichlet boundary conditions, that is, all quantities are
     86given constant values. Here, stage and velocity at the boundaries
     87are set to 0.

    2222mass failures modelled here occur much closer to the Australian coastline and do not require a
    2323separate model for the deep water propagation. Here, we choose to model the submarine mass failure
    24 according to the work by Grilli and Watts which provides an inital surface elevation function
    25 which can then be propagated ashore.
     24according to the work by Watts and Grilli \cite{watts:smf}
     25which provides an inital surface elevation function
     26which can then be propagated ashore. This model has been based on
     27experimental work by these authors and allows an initial condition to be applied rather
     28than modelling the mechanism of the slide. Therefore, this model is adequate for the purposes of this study
     29to highlight the potential danger from a slide. Further validation work is required before
     30this model is used for detailed impact analysis.
    2732To capture the \emph{impact} of a tsunami to a coastal community, we use ANUGA \cite{ON:modsim}.
