Caption: Landslide-generated tsunami. Artwork of a tsunami (right) generated in a lake by a landslide (left). The tsunami, a surge of water more commonly generated by an underwater earthquake, is flooding the city on the shores of the lake. The wave produced by landslides and earthquakes are small in deep water, but increase in size when they move into shallow waters along shores and coastlines. An example of an area potentially threatened by landslide-generated earthquakes is the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, where a tsunami occurred in the 6th century.
