Morphology of Australia’s eastern continental slope and related tsunami hazard

Presented by Ms. Samantha CLARKE on 24 Sep 2013 from 14:00 to 14:15
Type: Oral presentation, full-paper
Track: Oral presentations


Morphologic characterisation of five distinct, eastern Australian upper continental slope submarine landslides enabled modelling of their tsunami hazard. Flow depth, run-up and inundation distance has been calculated for each of the five landslides. Future submarine landslides with similar characteristics to these could generate tsunami with maximum flow depths ranging five to ten meters at the coastline, maximum run-up of five meters and maximum inundation distances of one kilometre
