About the book

There have been many studies conducted by various scientists worldwide to deepen the understanding of tsunamis but there is a need to adopt a new approach and lessons learned from other studies to be implemented on each other's models. In this way, compression studies, integrated studies, regional studies will reach/influence global studies.

The far-field and near-field tsunami caused by an earthquake as a major source (75%) and submarine eruption, landslide, land seismic activity as a minor source require special attention.

Hopefully this book will highlight different possible tsunami sources including land earthquake, submarine and coastal landslides, volcanoes etc.

Another important topic that also needs to be highlighted are mud volcanoes (both onshore and offshore). These are important for the coastal development in the subduction margins. It is vital that the above is discussed worldwide but emphasis should be put on Makran Subduction zone.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
