Archaeological evidence that a late 14th-century tsunami devastated the coast of northern Sumatra and redirected history

In subduction zones, the greatest hazard from earthquakes often comes from tsunami waves. However, models linking earthquake slip to tsunamis often fit data poorly (e.g.

The Child of Krakatoa Awakes

At approximately 9:30pm local time (2:30pm GMT) on the 22 December 2018, a tsunami struck Indonesia’s Sunda Strait, which lies between the islands of Java and Sumatra, claiming over 430 lives. According to Indonesia’s disaster agency there are at least 1,500 injured, over 120 people still missing, and around 12,000 people have been displaced.

The final goal of the on-going three-year project is to develop a process-based, coupled hydrodynamic and morphological model for simulating sediment transport and deposit under tsunami waves.

To better understand the earthquakes and associated tectonic setting and ground shaking, we propose to study earthquakes in Southeast Asia, the most seismically active region on the earth, with a s

Rupture durations and other physical processes of tsunami earthquakes show strong variations and the underlying mechanisms of both earthquake and tsunami generations have not been understood.

This webinar was part of the preparations for the Subduction Zone Observatory workshop held on 29 September to 1 October 2016 at the Boise Centre in Boise, Idaho, USA.
