The generation mechanism of the 1741 Oshima-Oshima tsunami, which is considered to be the most destructive tsunami that has ever originated in the Japan Sea, has been the subject of much debate. The tsunami caused about 2,000 casualties along the Hokkaido and northern Honsu coasts and inflicted damage as far as the Korean Peninsula. The tsunami source is located between recent tsunamigenic earthquakes, but there is no historical record of an earthquake in 1741. In contrast, the records indicate… 
Stratigraphic records of tsunamis along the Japan Sea, southwest Hokkaido, northern Japan
The stratigraphy of tsunami deposits along the Japan Sea, southwest Hokkaido, northern Japan, reveals tsunami recurrences in this particular area. Sandy tsunami deposits are preserved in small valley
Tsunamis Generated by Submarine Landslides
Submarine landslides can generate tsunamis and cause coastal hazard. Because the horizontal scale of submarine landslide is comparable to water depth and much smaller than the scale of earthquake
Tsunamis and possible tsunamigenic deposits along the eastern margin of the Japan Sea
Extensive research has been conducted on tsunamigenic deposits along the eastern margin of the Japan Sea since the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and tsunami. This paper reviews the characteristics of the
Fault model of the 12th century southwestern Hokkaido earthquake estimated from tsunami deposit distributions
Tsunami deposits were collected along the coast of southwestern Hokkaido and Okushiri Island, northern Japan. The distribution of these deposits suggested that large earthquakes and tsunamis have
Historical Tsunami Records on Russian Island, the Sea of Japan
In this article, we provide data evidencing tsunamis on Russian Island over the last 700 years. Reconstructions are developed based on the analyses of peat bog sections on the coast of Spokoynaya
Numerical modeling of the subaerial landslide source of the 22 December 2018 Anak Krakatoa volcanic tsunami, Indonesia
Abstract The eruption of the Anak Krakatoa volcano (Indonesia) in December 2018 produced a destructive tsunami with maximum runup of 13 m killing 437 people. Since the occurrence of this rare
Megatsunamis Induced by Volcanic Landslides in the Canary Islands: Age of the Tsunami Deposits and Source Landslides
Evidence for frequent, large landslides on the flanks of the volcanic edifices forming the Canary Islands include outstanding landslide scars and their correlative submarine and subaerial rock and
Estimating the Topography Before Volcanic Sector Collapses Using Tsunami Survey Data and Numerical Simulations
Large sector collapses and landslides have the potential to cause significant disasters. Estimating the topography and conditions, such as volume, before the collapse is thus important for analyzing
Chapter 58 – Volcanic Tsunamis
A wide variety of volcanic processes can produce tsunamis at coastal, island, and submarine volcanoes and also within lakes on or near inland volcanoes. These processes include submarine volcanic
Numerical Simulations of December 22, 2018 Anak Krakatau Tsunami and Examination of Possible Submarine Landslide Scenarios
On December 22, 2018, a destructive tsunami related to the phenomena caused by the volcanic eruption of Gunung Anak Krakatau (GAK) was generated following a partial collapse of the volcano that


The 1741 Oshima‐Oshima Eruption: Extent and volume of submarine debris avalanche
Oshima-Oshima is a small volcanic island southwest off Hokkaido in Japan Sea. The violent eruption on August 29, 1741 caused a sector collapse of the north flank. Very destructive tsunami with 2000
Tsunami generation of the 1993 Hokkaido Nansei-Oki earthquake
Heterogeneous fault motion of the 1993 Hokkaido Nansei-Oki earthquake is studied by using seismic, geodetic and tsunami data, and the tsunami generation from the fault model is examined.
Observations of physical effects from tsunamis of December 30, 2002 at Stromboli volcano, southern Italy
On December 30, 2002, following an intense period of activity of Stromboli volcano (south Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy), complex mass failures occurred on the northwest slope of the mountain which also
Some Aspects of Energy Balance and Tsunami Generation by Earthquakes and Landslides
Abstract— Tsunamis are generated by displacement or motion of large volumes of water. While there are several documented cases of tsunami generation by volcanic eruptions and landslides, most
Re-examination of the 1940 Shakotan-oki earthquake and the fault parameters of the earthquakes along the eastern margin of the Japan Sea
Abstract The fault model of the 1940 Shakotan-oki, Japan, earthquake of Aug. 1, 1940 is re-examined on the basis of magnitude, aftershock distribution and tsunami data. From a careful examination of
Model of Tsunami Generation by Collapse of Volcanic Eruption: The 1741 Oshima-Oshima Tsunami
Tsunamis generated by landslides are less studied than those caused by fault motion because of the low frequency of such events and the complexity of the generating mechanism. We carried out
Ritter Island Volcano—lateral collapse and the tsunami of 1888
SUMMARY In the early morning of 1888 March 13, roughly 5 km 3 of Ritter Island Volcano fell violently into the sea northeast of New Guinea. This event, the largest lateral collapse of an island
Mechanism of large earthquakes along the eastern margin of the Japan sea
Abstract The source mechanisms of large earthquakes occurring along the eastern margin of the Japan Sea are investigated. The earthquakes studied are those off Oga (May 7, 1964), Sakhalin (Sep. 5,
Total analysis of the 1993 Hokkaido Nansei‐Oki Earthquake using seismic wave, tsunami, and geodetic data
The fault geometry and slip distribution of the Hokkaido Nansei-oki, Japan, earthquake of July 12, 1993 are estimated using seismic wave, tsunami, and geodetic data. The Moment Tensor Rate Function
Quantification of Historical Tsunamis by the M t Scale: ―歴史津波への応用―
A method for determining the tsunami magnitude Mt from tsunami run-up heights is developed by using the Abe's (1989) relation which has been employed for estimating run-up heights from earthquake
