This study has assessed the current state of knowledge regarding the potential for tsunami impact on the NSW coastline from submarine mass failure events. 2D modelling suggests that there is the potential for sizeable coastal flow depths, however, the lateral extent of the impact is not estimated using these methods. Preliminary 3D modelling results suggest that models are highly sensitive to model input factors resulting in significant variation in the initial sea surface waveform. This then results in varied inundation footprints. Full 3D modelling results will be presented at the conference.
