Canary Island Landslides and Atlantic Ocean Tsunami Generation
December 17, 2013 | National Oceanography Centre
"The risk posed by tsunami waves generated by Canary Island landslides may need to be re-evaluated, according to researchers at the National Oceanography Centre. Their findings suggest that these landslides result in smaller tsunami waves than previously thought by some authors, because of the processes involved."
