The probability model is termed as confluent gamma density. Some distributional properties of this model are derived. A graphical representation of the model for the varying values of parameter is illustrated. The model thrusts into an interesting application which relates it with tsunami event modelling. A study on tsunami occurrence is essential since it happens frequently at different parts of the world. Here we give an overall view about tsunamis and analyze tsunami interevent times.}, number={1}, journal={Statistica}, author={Thomas, Naiju M.}, year={2014}, month={Jan.}, pages={117–127} }
