In this review paper we discuss the range of validity of nonlinear dispersive integrable equations for the modelling of the propagation of tsunami waves. For the 2004 tsunami the available measurements and the geophyiscal scales involved rule out a connection between integrable nonlinear wave equations and tsunami dynamics.
