dered to be the most dangerous natural disaster to human kind as proven by the 2004 Indian Ocean
Earthquake and the 2011 Japan Earthquake. These tsunamis triggered extensive efforts to develop the disaster
response system especially for the urban coastal residential area with high population density. However, not many
studies deal with the development of the tsunami disaster response system for major ports and harbors. This study
discusses the complete list of the items to be considered for development of tsunami disaster response system
specifically tailored for ports and harbors. For study purposes, we selected state-managed major international trade
ports and coastal harbors in Korea, and aimed to formulate an effective tsunami disaster response system based on
field surveys and related literature. First, the general items that needs to be addressed in the development of the tsunami
disaster response system are explained. Second, the items to be included in the development of the emergency action
plans (EAP) for ports and harbors are discussedForm Required :
