Tsunamis

  • Tsunami generation requires the sudden displacement of water. Tsunami initiation events include:

  • Earthquakes, particularly normal or reverse (thrust) faulting where displacement along the fault is up-down

  • Submarine slump, usually (but not always) initiated by an earthquake. GREATEST TSUNAMI HAZARD TO THE UNITED STATES

  • Volcanic eruptions, particularly those involving submarine volcanic explosions and/or caldera collapse. Krakatau, 1883

  • Landslide or Rockfall

  • Prehistoric, but with ample geological evidence:

  • 6) Volcanic Flank Collapse (Hawaii, Canary Islands)

  • 7) Meteorite Impact

  • (Largest earthquake in recorded history M = 9.5):

  • Hilo, Hawaii: wave refraction focuses energy into the bay

  • Onagawa, Japan: example of “Trough first”

  • Submarine slump water. Tsunami initiation events include:, usually (but not always) initiated by an earthquake. GREATEST TSUNAMI HAZARD TO THE UNITED STATES

  • Sediment on the edge of steep continental slope, particularly near trenches and submarine canyons, can be mobilized into a submarine slide.

  • Examples:

  • Papua, New Guinea, 1998

  • -3 waves of 14 meters kill 2,500 people after moderate earthquake (Richter 7)

  • 2) Nicaragua, September 1992: Richter 7 caused tsunami with runup of 10 meters. Seafloor survey conducted afterward showed slide “scars”

  • Both examples near subduction zone, so these may be thrust fault generated like Indonesia, but…
