Abstract : Gravity waves generated by underwater explosions and the wave run-up are predicted for a series of tests to be performed in Mono Lake (California). The time histories of the wave profiles are given at various locations in the lake in deep and shallow water where wave recorders will be installed. The times of arrival and heights of wave run-up are determined at three locations on the shoreline of Mono Lake. This prediction is done by making use of the most advanced theories and all available information in that field.
