Abstract
    The Tsunami disaster in Asia from December 26, 2004 was a reason to reconsider the risk of a Tsunami in the North Sea and the risk of a Tsunami impact to the German coast. Therefore, numerical simulations were performed to study the propagation of a Tsunami wave in the North Sea and find out the most affected areas in the North Sea and in the German bight. It could be shown that the German bight is well protected against a Tsunami wave by the shallow water depths of the wadden seas. This is not the case for the Dutch coast and the British Island which would be significantly affected by a Tsunami. A Tsunami entering the North Sea from the English Channel will not have any severe consequences in the North Sea, since this wave will be reflected and dampened in the English Channel.
