Abstract

Field surveys were performed on disasters caused by Indian Ocean tsunami that occurred in December 26, 2004. Surveys were done in the south part of Sri Lanka and in Aceh of Indonesia. From the survey results, varieties of disaster mechanisms were found. Local natural conditions and social conditions gave big influences on the disaster mechanism. In order to promote an appropriate post tsunami rehabilitation and environmental restoration process, cooperative works with local engineers and university professors are essential since the restoration process should include the local social and natural conditions.
