Abstract:

Tsunami hazard in the Arctic Region is discussed. The greatest danger of tsunami of seismotectonic origin for the Arctic coast of Russia comes from the earthquakes that occur in the area of underwater Gakkel Ridge. The earthquakes with magnitude Mw ~ 6.5-7.0 and frequency of 10-2/year and with magnitude Mw ~ 7.5 and frequency of 10-3/year may occur in this area. Using numerical scenario modeling, two of the most powerful earthquakes recorded in the basin of the Arctic Ocean: in the Baffi n Bay (1933, Mw = 7,7) and in the Laptev Sea (1964, Mw = 6,7) where the maximum height of tsunami waves on the coast near the earthquake centre would reach 10 m and 0.3 m, were simulated.
