Scope Submarine landslides are one of the important geo-hazard topics in next phase of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (new IODP; International Ocean Development Program). Submarine landslide studies are being propelled strongly by two International Geological Correlation Programmes (IGCP-511; 2005-2009 and IGCP-585; 2010-2014).
The main objective of this session is to bring a world-wide perspective of submarine mass movements and their consequences by assembling state-of-the-art contributions from international researchers of academic institutions and the offshore industry, and to stimulate the research. This session provides full coverage of the scientific and engineering aspects of this type of marine and coastal geo-hazards.
