An examination of ancient and contemporary submarine landslides and their impact

Landslides are common in every subaqueous geodynamic context, from passive and active continental margins to oceanic and continental intraplate settings. They pose significant threats to both offshore and coastal areas due to their frequency, dimensions, and terminal velocity, capacity to travel great distances, and ability to generate potentially destructive tsunamis.

Submarine Landslides: Subaqueous Mass Transport Deposits from Outcrops to Seismic Profiles examines the mechanisms, characteristics, and impacts of submarine landslides.

Volume highlights include:
* Use of different methodological approaches, from geophysics to field-based geology
* Data on submarine landslide deposits at various scales
* Worldwide collection of case studies from on- and off-shore
* Potential risks to human society and infrastructure
* Impacts on the hydrosphere, atmosphere, and lithosphere
