We perform numerical simulations to assess tsunami hazard along the upper US East Coast (USEC; From Virginia to Cape Cod, MA), caused by Submarine Mass Failures (SMFs) triggered on the continental shelf slope, considering the effect of SMF rheology, i.e., whether the SMFs behave as rigid slumps or deforming slides. We simulate tsunami generation using the three-dimensional non-hydrostatic model NHWAVE. For rigid slumps, the geometry and law of motion are specified as bottom boundary conditions… Expand
