Potential Future Research

  • Compare with deposits of other modern tsunamis; use results to interpret paleo-tsunami deposits in Peru and other locations.
  • Use Peru Tsunami deposits to further develop and test models to calculate flow properties from sediment deposits.
  • Collect bathymetric data for flow modeling.
  • Collect sediment samples offshore to determine source of sediment in tsunami deposits.
  • Conduct geophysical surveys offshore to map subsurface structure and surficial offsets caused by recent faulting.
