Abstract: As a marine hazard, submarine slope failures have the potential to directly destroy offshore infrastructure, and, if a tsunami is generated, it also endangers the life of those who live and work at the coastline. The hazard and risk from tsunamis generated by submarine mass failure is difficult to quantify and evaluate due to the problems to constrain the characteristics of the triggered submarine landslide, which introduces unquantifiable uncertainty to hazard assessments based on numerical modelling. To lowe…
