Geomorphological effects of tsunami run-up and backwash

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



To date, most studies have considered the sedimentology of palaeo-tsunamis while almost no detailed studies have been undertaken in areas known to have been affected by tsunamis in recent times. Research on contemporary tsunamis show that coastal landscapes may be greatly altered not only by direct tsunami run-up orthogonal to the shoreline, but also by episodes of vigourous backwash and by water flow sub-parallel to the coastline. Deposition of large boulders is also associated with severe tsunamis, while in adjacent areas run-up processes often result in the deposition of continuous and discontinuous sediment sheets
