Numerical Modeling of a Landslide-Generated Tsunami Following a Potential Explosion of the Montserrat Volcano

Abstract

The explosion of the Montserrat volcano (Caribbean Sea) could trigger a major landslide and lead to the generation of a tsunami in the Caribbean Sea. In the worst case scenario, the volume of material reaching the sea has been estimated at 80 millions of cubic meters. The sliding of this mass and the generation of the associated tsunami have been simulated… (More)
