AbstractAn annotated bibliography of references relevant to tsunami hazard in Canada has been compiled. The bibliography lists published papers, books, monographs, theses, and readily available manuscript reports. Conference abstracts are generally included only when the information is unavailable elsewhere. Each entry includes a bibliographic reference as well as either an abstract (where available), summary, conclusions, introduction, preface or contents. The bibliography consists of two main parts. The first part includes the results of a thorough literature search for references pertaining directly to tsunami hazard in Canada. The references are arranged regionally, with different sections for Canada-wide references, and the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic coasts. Within each regional section, a list of general references is followed by more specific sections, e.g., for the Pacific coast: earthquake-induced tsunamis, landslide-induced tsunamis, meteorological tsunamis, and Pacific far-field sources. In turn, each regional section may include sub-sections pertaining to studies of historical and/or potential future tsunamis. Part 2 of the bibliography is a less exhaustive compilation of general tsunami references covering topics of tsunami science, tsunami hazard analysis, and studies of historical and pre-historic tsunamis from elsewhere in the world that may have relevance to studies of Canadian tsunamis.
