AB - We consider here a probability model which associates the usual gamma form with a confluent hypergeometric series. 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.
