Abstract: The handbook is one of the products of the SCHEMA project (FP 6 Space priority) and has been conceived to illustrate the basic concepts and methods that have been elaborated and applied in the project to produce tsunami scenarios in view of providing tools to assess hazard and potential damage resulting from tsunamis. One of the main objectives was the elaboration of a general methodology that can be used in all possible cases and that can be adapted easily to the needs of the end users, i.e. chiefly the public administrators responsible for planning of the coastal zone development and protection strategies as well as people and organisations involved in disasters management and mitigation policies. It is for these reasons, that the SCHEMA methodology has been applied to five test sites (Rabat, Morocco; Setúbal, Portugal; Mandelieu, France; Catania, Italy; Balchik, Bulgaria) that differ very much from one another, so proving that it is suitable for a quite large variety of cases, and that it has been tested with the active involvement of the end users, so ensuring that it will provide practical and useful tools and it is flexible enough to cover local needs.
