Abstract

Meteorological tsunamis, or meteo-tsunamis, are long-period waves that possess tsunami charcteristics but are meteorological in origin, although they are not storm surges. The AA. investigate the coast of southern Britain (the English Channel, the Bristol Channel, and the Severn Estuary) for the occurrence of tsunami-like waves that, in the absence of associated seismic activity, they recognize as meteo-tsunamis. This coastal hazard has resulted in damage and loss of life and should be considered in future coastal defense strategies and in beach-user risk assessments
