Modelling the 1929 Grand Banks slump and landslide tsunami
On 18 November 1929, an Mw 7.2 earthquake occurred south of Newfoundland, displacing >100 km3 of sediment volume that evolved into a turbidity current. The resulting tsunami was recorded across the Atlantic and caused ...
Impacts of extreme weather events on transport infrastructure in Norway
(Journal article, 2016)
The landslide tsunami at Statland, mid-Norway January 2014
Stochastic analysis of tsunami runup due to heterogeneous coseismic slip and dispersion
(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012)
Most tsunami models apply dislocation models that assume uniform slip over the entire fault plane, followed by standard analytical models based on Volterra's theory of elastic dislocations for the seabed deformation. In ...
Tsunami generation by potential, partially submerged rockslides in an abandoned open-pit mine: The case of Black Lake, Québec, Canada
(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
The Black Lake rockslide is located on the east wall of an open pit mine initially operated by LAB Chrysotile near Thetford Mines, Québec. Movements were observed in July 2012 when a volume of 20 M m³ was mobilized, ...
On the characteristics of landslide tsunamis
(Journal article, 2015)
This review presents modelling techniques and processes that govern landslide tsunami generation, with emphasis on tsunamis induced by fully submerged landslides. The analysis focuses on a set of representative examples ...
Earthquake related tsunami hazard along the western coast of Thailand
(Journal article, 2006)
The primary background for the present study was a project to assist the authorities in Thailand with development of plans for how to deal with the future tsunami risk in both short and long term perspectives, in the wake ...
Risk assessment and design of prevention structures for enhanced tsunami disaster resilience (RAPSODI) - Euro-Japan collaboration
(Journal article, 2016)
The 2011 Tōhoku event showed the massive destruction potential of tsunamis. The Euro-Japan “Risk assessment and design of prevention structures for enhanced tsunami disaster resilience (RAPSODI)” project aimed at using ...
Emerging insights into the dynamics of submarine debris flows
(Journal article, 2005)
Recent experimental and theoretical work on the dynamics of submarine debris flows is summarized. Hydroplaning was first discovered in laboratory flows and later shown to likely occur in natural debris flows as well. It ...
