This book 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 researches.
- Provides a comprehensive overview of developments in tsunamiites
- Investigates future trends and development needs
- Cutting edge research articles from leading experts aimed at researchers and scientists
Scientists and Researchers of various fields with an interest in the sedimentology of tsunami records.
