Tsunami hazard assessment in the Makran subduction zone
The lack of offshore seismic data caused uncertainties associated with understating the behavior of future tsunamigenic earthquakes in the Makran subduction zone (MSZ). Future tsunamigenic events in
Horizontal displacement effect in tsunami wave generation in the western Makran region
The current silent status of the western segment of the Makran Subduction Zone (MSZ), also known as the western Makran, is an opportunity to examine different aspects of a tsunami hazard for this
Study of Characteristics and the Coverage of Tsunami Wave Using 2 D Numerical Modeling in the South Coast of Bali , Indonesia
The location of Indonesia, which is on the three main tectonic plate boundaries, makes Indonesia prone to disasters, including the tsunami. One of the vulnerable areas to tsunami disaster is the
A Review of Tsunami Hazards in the Makran Subduction Zone
The uncertain tsunamigenic potential of the Makran Subduction Zone (MSZ) has made it an interesting natural laboratory for tsunami-related studies. This study aims to review the recent activities on
Tsunami modeling in the Chabahar Bay-Iran from worst-case Makran seismic scenarios: new insights into spectral characterization, separation of the continental shelf, and topography effects
The main objectives of this study are evaluating the statistical and spectral properties of tsunami waves as well as their energy behavior associated with the worst-case Makran seismic scenarios. The
Intergrated Approach Of Tsunami Vulnerability Assessment At Coastal Area Of Kalianda Sub District, South Lampung District, Lampung Province, Indonesia
Kalianda Subdistrict is a densely populated area located in the coastal area of South Lampung District, Lampung Province. Its location is only 323.6 km to the confluence zone of the tectonic plate of


Thermal structure and megathrust seismogenic potential of the Makran subduction zone
The Makran subduction zone experienced a tsunamigenic Mw 8.1 earthquake in 1945 and recent, smaller earthquakes also suggest seismicity on the megathrust; however, its historical record is limited
The Makran subduction zone of Iran and Pakistan exhibits strong variation in seismicity between its eastern and western segments and has one of the world's largest forearcs. We determine the source
A Combined Earthquake–Landslide Source Model for the Tsunami from the 27 November 1945 Mw 8.1 Makran Earthquake
The tsunami of 27 November 1945 from an M w 8.1 earthquake in the Makran subduction zone is the only instrumentally recorded and deadly tsunami in the northwest Indian Ocean; offshore Iran, Pakistan,
The hazard potential of the western segment of the Makran subduction zone, northern Arabian Sea
Evaluating the hazard potential of the Makran subduction zone requires understanding the previous records of the large earthquakes and tsunamis. We address this problem by searching for earthquake
Sources of Tsunami and Tsunamigenic Earthquakes in Subduction Zones
Abstract—We classified tsunamigenic earthquakes in subduction zones into three types earth quakes at the plate interface (typical interplate events), earthquakes at the outer rise, within the
Far-field tsunami hazard from mega-thrust earthquakes in the Indian Ocean
SUMMARY We evaluate far-field tsunami hazard in the Indian Ocean Basin based on hydrodynamic simulations of ten case studies of possible mega earthquakes at the major seismic zones surrounding the
Complex earthquake rupture and local tsunamis
[1] In contrast to far-field tsunami amplitudes that are fairly well predicted by the seismic moment of subduction zone earthquakes, there exists significant variation in the scaling of local tsunami
Numerical simulation of tsunami runup in northern Chile based on non-uniform k−2 slip distributions
A large seismic gap lies along northern Chile and could potentially trigger a Mw ~ 8.8–9.0 megathrust earthquake as pointed out in several studies. The April 1, 2014, Pisagua earthquake broke the
Amplitude patterns of tsunami waves from submarine earthquakes
Excitation of tsunamis by submarine faults is studied with the purpose of revealing the relations that exist between seismic and tsunamigenic source parameters. Evidence is produced to show that the
