Advanced Tsunami Numerical Simulations and Energy Considerations by use of 3D–2D Coupled Models: The October 11, 1918, Mona Passage Tsunami

AbstractThe most recent tsunami observed along the coast of the island of Puerto Rico occurred on October 11, 1918, after a magnitude 7.2 earthquake in the Mona Passage. The earthquake was

Morphology, structure, and tectonic evolution of the Mona Canyon, Puerto Rico

The Mona Canyon is a z-shaped, 20-30 km-wide, 140 km-long, and 2-3.5 km-deep atypical submarine canyon that incises the Greater Antilles island arc off the northwest coast of Puerto Rico. This is the

Coulomb stress evolution in Northeastern Caribbean over the past 250 years due to coseismic, postseismic and interseismic deformation

SUMMARY The Northeastern Caribbean region accommodates ∼20 mm yr −1 of oblique convergence between the North American and Caribbean plates, which is distributed between the subduction interface and

Advanced Tsunami Numerical Simulations of The Puerto Rico October 11 , 1918 Mona Passage Tsunami

The most recent tsunami observed along the coast of the island of Puerto Rico occurred on October 11, 1918 after a magnitude7.2 earthquake was generated in the Mona Passage. The earthquake was

A Comprehensive Hazard Assessment of the Caribbean Region

We present a probabilistic seismic hazard study for the Caribbean (CAR) that integrates global and regional historic earthquake catalogs, a comprehensive fault database, and geodetic data. To

Mass wasting plays an important role in carbon cycling and sequestration by exposing fresh bedrock and delivering hillslope sediments to lowlands and fluvial systems. Chemical weathering signatures

Rapid prediction of alongshore run-up distribution from near-field tsunamis

Rapid prediction of the spatial distribution of the run-up from near-field tsunamis is critically important for tsunami hazard characterization. Even though significant advances have been made over
