Abstract

Submarine landslides can pose serious tsunami hazard to coastal communities. However, performing a comprehensive landslide tsunami hazard assessment for a given area is in general difficult in view of the large uncertainties associated with tsunamigenic source parameters. These are often known only approximately, on the basis of estimates of the landslide geometry, slide material properties, and kinematics. Here, we present an efficient model to perform such hazard analyses, based on solving the linear mildslope equation with a time-dependent source term representing the seafloor motion as detailed in Iorio et al. (2021). This approach allows carrying out many computations, for a large number of landslide scenarios, in a Monte Carlo (MC) approach framework, at a reduced computational cost compared to other available methods, while still providing physically accurate simulations of most landslide tsunami generation and propagation.
