Tsunami Hazard in La Reunion Island (SW Indian Ocean): Scenario-Based Numerical Modelling on Vulnerable Coastal Sites
Allgeyer, Sebastien; Quentel, E; Hebert, H; Gailler, A; Loevenbruck, A
Several major tsunamis have affected the southwest Indian Ocean area since the 2004 Sumatra event, and some of them (2005, 2006, 2007 and 2010) have hit La Réunion Island in the southwest Indian Ocean. However, tsunami hazard is not well defined for La Réunion Island where vulnerable coastlines can be exposed. This study offers a first tsunami hazard assesment for La Réunion Island. We first review the historical tsunami observations made on the coastlines, where high tsunami waves (2–3 m) have...[Show more]
