We investigate the potential of local earthquakes to generate tsunamis and seiches within Lake Tahoe. We calculated the long wavelength oscillations generated by 3 hypothetical M w > 7 earthquake scenarios for faults with normal slip directly under and outside the lake basin. The scenarios involving fault slip under the lake are the North Tahoe-Incline Village and West Tahoe-Dollar Point scenarios. The Genoa scenario involves a fault that crops out 10 km east of the lake. Faulting beneath the… Expand
