Abstract/Summary Tsunamis are a potential threat to submarine installations especially when the pipelines traverse the continental slope and shelf. Tsunami propagation simulation for the 26th December 2004 event was carried out for the southeastern shelf and slope regions of India. The velocities generated along the shelf and slope regions in the vicinity of canyons and the shear stresses derived from these velocities are evaluated. A 3D hydrodynamic model with initial surface elevation obtained from the earthquake details was used to drive the tsunami model. Shear stresses along select transects in the vicinity of submarine canyons are studied.
