Dynamics of the Ocean Floor
6th International Symposium on Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences
We thank all participants of the 6th International Symposium on Submarine Mass Wasting and their Consequences for a very productive and inspiring meeting. Thanks for coming to Kiel and see you at the 7th symposium in two years....
The 6th International Symposium on Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences was hosted by the GEOMAR | Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Cluster of Excellence ‘The Future Ocean’ in Kiel (Germany) from 23rd - 25th september 2013

This symposium is an activity of the International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) 585 ‘Earth’s continental MARgins: aSessing the geoHAzard from submarine Landslides (E-MARSHALL)’. The International Geoscience Programme is a joint endeavor of UNESCO and the International Union of Geological Sciences. The main objective the symposium is to bring a world perspective of submarine mass movements and their consequences by assembling excellent contributions from active international researchers, academic institutions, and the oil and gas industry thus providing full coverage of the many scientific and engineering aspects of this type of marine and coastal geo-hazard.
Conference themes include but are not limited to:
- Active vs passive margin landslides
- Landslide at volcanic ocean islands
- Preconditioning factors and triggers of submarine landslides
- Submarine landslide dynamics
- Structure and stratigraphy of submarine mass transport deposits
- Modeling of landslides and associated tsunamis
- Geotechnical slope stability assessment and investigations of potential submarine landslides
- The seismic cycle and landslides (seismoturbidites)
- Coastal impact of submarine landslides
- Tools for analyzing submarine landslides (imaging, sampling, and dating)
- Hazard and risk assessment, landslide precursors, and early warning
The submitted full papers, if positively reviewed, will be jointly published in volume 5 of the successful Book Series ‘Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences’.
