Abstract

We present a short review of the state-of-the-art numerical tools that have been used for modeling landslide-generated waves. A comparative study is conducted on the physical properties of earthquake- and landslide-generated waves suggesting that both dispersion and nonlinearity effects may be neglected for the former waves whereas they may be considered for the latter ones. We introduce landslide tsunami models and group them into three classes: (1) models treating the moving mass as a fluid, (2) models estimating the initial water surface, and (3) models fed by the transient seafloor deformation. Selection of a particular model from the list of models introduced here depends on: (1) the dimensions of the source, (2) the available computing capacities, (3) availability of fine bathymetric grid, and (4) the purposes of the modeling.
