<p>Thin coastal dykes typically found in developing countries may suddenly collapse due to rapid land subsidence, material ageing, sea-level rise, high wave attack, earthquakes, landslides, or a collision with vessels. Such a failure could trigger dam-break ...

The main reason for the generation of tsunamis is the deformation of the bottom of the ocean caused by an underwater earthquake. Usually, only the vertical bottommotion is taken into account while the horizontal co-seismic displacements are neglected in the ...

This paper is an overview of the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman Megathrust Rupture.

<p>We conduct a comprehensive study of the Amorgos, Greece earthquake and tsunami of 1956 July 09, the largest such event in the Aegean Sea in the 20th century. Systematic relocation of the main shock and 34 associated events defines a rupture area measuring ...

To understand the reason why the co-seismic slip and tsunami amplitudes were so high in this region, was performed the "Sumatra Aftershocks" cruise (R/V Marion Dufresne, Jakarta, July 15 - Colombo, August 9, 2005) in order to establish the geodynamical context ...

To understand the role of the co-seismic moment magnitude, Mw, 9.1–9.3 Sumatra–Andaman Earthquake rupture mechanism on the severity of the Indian Ocean Tsunami, we used permanent Global Positioning System (GPS) data and carried out an analysis of co-seismic ...

<p>The primary objective of this study is to examine tsunami generation from the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake at different levels of parameterization for the purpose of forecasting and assessing future tsunamis.</p>

This review starts with the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake and the associated Indian Ocean tsunami, then proceeds to offer long-term perspectives from earthquakes and tsunamis recorded geologically on the Pacic Rim. Histories of earthquakes and tsunamis, ...

This paper summarizes the ndings obtained mainly from seismic data, and discusses the unique eature of this earthquake, and possible directions of research to minimize the impact of great earthquakes on our society.

In this study rupture process of the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake is estimated using tsunami waveforms observed at tide gauges and the coseismic vertical deformation observed along the coast.
