The key goals to studying submarine landslides and associated tsunamis are to better assess the magnitude information of palaeo-tsunamis and to contribute to assessing future tsunami risks. The numerical modelling of submarine landslides and the tsunamis thus generated comprises important interdisciplinary research that requires knowledge of both geology and numerical modelling. Models are capable of delineating the time evolution of tsunami hydrodynamics, sediment transport, and the resulting morphological changes associated with deposition. To advance towards the ultimate goal of improved tsunami risk assessment, modellers and geologists need to develop an in-depth mutual understanding of the advantages, limitations, and uncertainties in both numerical modelling and geological records. In this work, seafloor features related to former submarine landslides in the Alboran Sea basin have been identified through multibeam bathymetry data and high- to very high-resolution seismic ...
