  • Sont reportés ci-dessous les tsunamis ayant fait plus de 1 000 victimes estimées, ainsi que quelques autres d'amplitude ou d'étendue considérables.
  • This article lists notable historical tsunamis, which are sorted by the date and location that the tsunami occurred, the earthquake that generated it, or both.Because of seismic and volcanic activity tectonic plate boundaries along the Pacific Ring of Fire, tsunamis occur most frequently in the Pacific Ocean, but are worldwide natural phenomena. They are possible wherever large bodies of water are found, including inland lakes, where they can be caused by landslides and glacier calving. Very small tsunamis, non-destructive and undetectable without specialized equipment, occur frequently as a result of minor earthquakes and other events.As early as 426 BC, the Greek historian Thucydides inquired in his book History of the Peloponnesian War (3.89.1–6) about the causes of tsunamis. He argued rightly that it could only be explained as a consequence of ocean earthquakes, and could see no other possible causes for the phenomenon.Crete and the Argolid and other locations were destroyed by a tsunami caused by the eruption of Thira, which destroyed Minoan civilization on Crete and related cultures in the Cyclades and in areas facing the eruption on the Greek mainland such as the Argolid.During the Persian siege of the sea town Potidaea, Greece, in 479 BC, the Greek historian Herodotus reports how the Persian attackers who tried to exploit an unusual retreat of the water were suddenly surprised by "a great flood-tide, higher, as the people of the place say, than any one of the many that had been before". Herodotus attributes the cause of the sudden flood to the wrath of Poseidon.
  • Diese Liste von Tsunamis listet Ereignisse, bei denen durch zeitgenössische Berichte und geologische Untersuchungen Tsunamis als Folge von Vulkanausbrüchen, Erdbeben und untermeerischen Erdrutschen nachgewiesen wurden. Tsunamis wurden auch in Binnenseen beobachtet.
