Underwater ground failures are the important new topics for tsunami generation. This
workshop's purpose is to discuss and develop fundamental studies for identification of
underwater mass failures (landslide, slump, fault break, subsidence, collapse) related to
tsunami generation. Close working relationship among scientists from different countries
and different professional experiences are necessary for tsunami mitigation studies.
Modelling of tsunami generation and propagation, paleotsunami surveys, tsunami risks and
mitigation of tsunami hazards are main objectives of the proposed Advanced Research
