Tsunami-like Events in Russian Inland Waters ‎

Didenkulova I.I., Pelinovsky E.N.

Descriptions and manifestations of tsunami-like events in Russian inland waters (lakes, rivers and water ‎reservoirs) are collected and analyzed. For the time period of 400 years nine such events are found, ‎whereof descriptions of seven events can be categorized as reliable. Data analysis confirms the possibility ‎of tsunami wave generation in all types of inland waters. There is therefore a need to educate the general ‎population about the risk of tsunami generation.
