|Experiment Type:||Tsunami Wave Basin|
|Description:||The landslide tsunami generator (LTG) was deployed in the conical island scenario with a water depth of 0.3 m. The LTG was raised approximately 0.33 m along the slope from the LTG position in the Island30. The LTG position in Island30High is the same position that was used in all other Island configuration experiments. The conical island configuration consists of the LTG mounted to a conical section with a base diameter of 10 m and a slope of 1:2 (vertical:horizontal) or α = 27.1˚. Wave gauges were strategically placed in the basin along rays at various angles from the landslide source to describe the tsunami wave angular dependence. A hybrid system of runup wave gauges and camera recordings focused on the runup slope measured the wave runup. The deformable landside material consisted of naturally rounded river gravel. The landslide surface kinematics were recorded with a stereo particle image velocimetry (PIV) setup. The landslide deposit was scanned with a multi-transducer acoustic (MTA) array.|
