Landslide Wave and Tsunami Eddy
Submarine mass failures (SMF) are a potential source of hazardous tsunamis. While the link between seismic events and the magnitude of tsunami waves has been extensively studied and corresponding approaches are included in numerical tsunami warning models, the basic implementation of SMF generated waves is subject to ongoing research. In this context, laboratory experiments are essential for the validation of numerical schemes. The objective of this study is to gain a better insight into the hydraulic processes related to wave generation by submarine granular slides as well as establishing a comprehensive data set for the validation of numerical models.
