Abstract
Landslides falling into water bodies can generate destructive waves, which can be classified as tsunamis. An experimental facility to study this phenomenon has been set up. It consists of a landslidegenerator releasing gravel at high-speed into a wave basin. A non-intrusive system has been designed ad-hocto be able to measure the high velocity and the geometry of the landslide as well as the generated waves characteristics. The measurement system employs the treatment of images captured by a hig...
