Bedforms and sedimentary structures characterizing tsunami deposits -- 5. Tsunami depositional processes reflecting the waveform in a small bay : interpretation from the grain-size distribution and sedimentary structures -- 6. Deposits of the 1992 Nicaragua tsunami -- 7. Sedimentary characteristics and depositional processes of onshore tsunami deposits : an example of sedimentation associated with the July 12, 1993 Hokkaido-Nansei-Oki earthquake tsunami -- 8.

Lessons from the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami : implication for paleotsunami research -- 11. An overview on offshore tsunami deposits -- 12. Combined investigation of tradition archives and sedimentary relics of tsunami hazards : with reference to the Great 1700 Cascadia tsunami and other examples -- 13. Deep-sea homogenites : sedimentary expression of a prehistoric megatsunami in the eastern Mediterranean -- 14. Tsunami-related sedimentary properties of Mediterranean homogenites as an example of deep-sea tsunamiite -- 15. Volcanism-induced tsunamis and tsunamites -- 16. Tsunamiites : conceptual descriptions and a possible example at the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary in the Pernambuco Basin, northeastern Brazil -- 17. Deep-sea tsunami deposits in the proto-Caribbean Sea at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary -- 18. The genesis of ocean impact craters and impact-generated tsunami deposits -- 19. Tsunami boulder deposits : a strongly debated topic in paleo-tsunami research -- 20. Characteristic features of tsunamiites -- 21. Sedimentology of tsunamiits reflecting chaotic events in the geological record : significance and problems.
Summary Tsunamiites: Features and Implications, Second Edition, is an overview of the state-of-the art developments in sedimentology of tsunami-induced and tsunami-affected deposits, namely tsunamiites. It also highlights new problems and issues calling for additional investigation and provides insight into the direction for future tsunamiite research. New to this edition: discussion of the impact of 2011 tsunami in Northern Japan as well as additional coverage of offshore tractive current deposition and deposition of boulders.
