Abstract

This paper lists 93 entries, describing tsunamis and seiches which have been reported from southeast Asia during the period extending from 416 through 1965. Most of these tsunamis were reported from the western portions of Indonesia and the southern Philippines. Lesser numbers were reported from the northern Philippines, southern China and Formosa. No tsunamis are listed from the coats of the relatively aseismic regions surrounding the southern three-fourths of the South China Sea. About half of the tsunamis in Indonesia were generated by volcanic activity, while most of the waves reported from other portions of the area were generated by earthquakes.
