The paper describes a model of ocean waves generation by seismic movements of the bottom. A feature of the model is the use of curvilinear non-orthogonal sigma-coordinates. We used the model for studying the generation mechanisms of gravity waves excited by the surface seismic waves. The results of numerical experiments are presented in the paper.
