Probabilistic Landslide-Generated Tsunamis in the Indus Canyon, NW Indian Ocean, Using Statistical Emulation

Abstract
The Indus Canyon in the northwestern Indian Ocean has been reported to be the site of numerous submarine mass failures in the past. This study is the first to investigate potential tsunami hazards associated with such mass failures in this region. We employed statistical emulation, i.e. surrogate modelling, to efficiently quantify uncertainties associated with slump-generated tsunamis at the slopes of the canyon. We simulated 60 slump scenarios with thickness of 100–300 m, width of 6–10.5 km, travel distances of 500–2000 m and submergence depth of 250–450 m. These scenarios were then used to train the emulator and predict 500,000 trial scenarios in order to study probabilistically the tsunami hazard over the near field. Due to narrow–deep canyon walls and the shallow continental shelf in the adjacent regions (\(<100\) m water depth), the tsunami propagation has a unique pattern as an ellipse stretched in the NE–SW direction. The results show that the most likely tsunami amplitudes and velocities are approximately 0.2–1.0 m and 2.5–13 m/s, respectively, which can potentially impact vessels and maritime facilities. We demonstrate that the emulator-based approach is an important tool for probabilistic hazard analysis since it can generate thousands of tsunami scenarios in few seconds, compared to days of computations on High Performance Computing facilities for a single run of the dispersive tsunami solver that we use here.

Indian Ocean Indus Canyon landslide-generated tsunami statistical emulation uncertainty quantification1 Introduction
Submarine canyons can be found all over the world; at many cases their morphology results from continuous episodes of sediment collapse (Normark and Carlson 2003). Canyons located in the vicinity of shorelines can pose a risk to populated areas when flank collapse gives way to tsunami generation. For example, submarine collapse in the Cook Strait Canyon could lead to tsunami inundation on the coasts of Wellington, in New Zealand (Lane et al. 2016). The steep slopes and narrow widths of submarine canyons are capable of producing destructive tsunamis. Tsunamigenesis by sliding on open continental margins differs from those in submarine canyons (Power et al. 2016). The abrupt depth changes between the canyon and the shelf have an effect on the wave speed; refraction and reflection may also occur when the waves propagate over the canyon walls (Power et al. 2016). Tsunami propagation is sensitive to the canyon size, with the width and length being the most critical parameters; the canyon depth and the distance between the shore and the canyon head play also an important role (Aranguiz and Shibayama 2013). Tsunami run-up and arrival are affected by the geomorphology of the canyon: smaller but faster approaching waves are observed in the locations adjacent to the canyon head, whereas wave amplitude magnification occurs at the sides of the canyon (Aranguiz and Shibayama 2013; Iglesias et al. 2014).
2 The Indus Canyon: Geological Setting and Past Slumping Activities
The Indus Canyon is a submarine canyon cutting the Indus shelf on the passive continental margin of India and Pakistan (Figs. 1, 2a). The head of the canyon is located in front of the delta of the Indus River, one of the longest rivers in Asia. The upper and middle parts of the Indus Canyon are characterised by steep erosional walls which gradually give way to an extensive channel-levee system at the lower part of the canyon (von Rad and Tahir 1997). The channel-levee system feeds with sediment the Indus Fan, the second largest deep-sea fan in the world, possibly being active since the late Eocene (Clift et al. 2001). Several canyon systems on the Indus shelf, that contributed to the sediment supply of the Indus Fan, have progressively become inactive and were filled with sediments (Kolla and Coumes 1987; Bourget et al. 2013). The Indus Canyon forms the most recently active canyon at the shelf. Large volumes of sediment from the Indus River basin are being stored in the form of submarine clinoforms at the continental shelf east and west of the canyon (Clift et al. 2014). Among the scientific expeditions that took place in the region, the cruise with R.V. Sonne in 1993 and the most recent expedition (winter 2008/2009) on board R.V. Pelagia have studied the morphology of the Indus Canyon collecting swath bathymetry and seismic reflection data.
The data from the R. V. Pelagia survey provided with a high resolution bathymetric map of the canyon (Clift et al. 2014). One of the major findings of the R. V. Pelagia cruise was that the head of the canyon acts as a depositional area with rapid sediment accumulation rates (Clift et al. 2014). Discharged sediments from the Indus River are accumulating on the head of the canyon. They are then transported towards the lowest parts of the canyon without, however, evidence of significant sedimentation inside the canyon in the last 7 ka (Clift et al. 2014). Changes in the sedimentation rates are possibly linked with falling sea-levels or heavy monsoon periods (Clift et al. 2014). In-situ observations, seismic profiles and sedimentary cores obtained during the 1995 and 2008/2009 scientific expeditions provide evidence for slumping in different parts of the Indus Canyon (von Rad and Tahir 1997; Clift et al. 2014). von Rad and Tahir (1997) linked mass wasting processes on the continental shelf and the steep walls of the canyon with the low sea levels during the Last Glacial Maximum.
Four plausible failure locations discussed in Clift et al. (2014) and von Rad and Tahir (1997) are shown in Fig. 2a by red/grey stars. Slump terraces were observed in the middle part of the canyon (von Rad and Tahir 1997). Scarps at depths of 325 and 620 m, but also as shallow as 200 m, and slump masses have been identified by von Rad and Tahir (1997). At the head of the canyon, erosional features observed at seismic reflection profiles provide evidence of major reworking through slumping (Clift et al. 2014). A seismic profile across the axis of the upper part of the canyon revealed slump deposits on the seabed (Clift et al. 2014). The study area and a bathymetric profile across the axis of the canyon are shown in Fig. 2b–d. The 1D profile A–A\('\) is similar to the seismic profile collected by R.V. Pelagia (Fig. 2b, d). Some thick sedimentary deposits can be observed at the bottom of the slope, NE of the profile (Fig. 2b), that may constitute the slump deposits observed by Clift et al. (2014).
3 Numerical and Statistical Methods
3.1 Numerical Modelling of Tsunami and Slump Sources
For modelling tsunami propagation, the numerical code JAGURS is used (Baba et al. 2015, 2016). The code solves the nonlinear dispersive long-wave equations using a leapfrog (staggered-grid) scheme on Finite Differences (Baba et al. 2015). A domain-decomposition method was implemented for the parallelisation of the code (Baba et al. 2015). Dispersion of landslide tsunami propagation can be accounted by adding a dispersive term in the long wave equations (Boussinesq approach) (Baba et al. 2015). The use of nested grids allows the refinement of the regions of interest in the computational domain (Baba et al. 2015, 2016). Four grids are used in the numerical experiments with spatial resolutions varying from \(dx=dy=0.0045^\circ\) down to \(0.0005^\circ\) (Fig. 4). The largest domain (grid A) has the coarsest resolution and grid B has a spatial resolution of \(dx=dy=0.0015 ^\circ\). Grids C1 and C2 have the finest resolution (Table 1). Grid B acts as the transition between grids A and C1–C2; a grid ratio of 1 : 3 is chosen in accordance with other numerical studies with JAGURS (Baba et al. 2015, 2016).
Each grid is split into 32 subdomains to run the code in parallel. The time step used for tsunami simulation is \(dt=0.1\) seconds with a total simulation time of \(t_{fin} = 150\) min. A tsunami propagation scenario of 150 min may take roughly 85 h of KNL (KNights Landing) time on the computer cluster used in this study (32 processors on the Cambridge Service for Data Driven Discovery, CSD3, facility). Thirty-four artificial wave gauges measure the free surface elevation and velocity at various locations within the computational domain (Fig. 4). To study wave propagation toward the shoreline, we show here the records of three gauges located at lon. 68.129E, lat. 23.105N in water depth of – 19.22 m (G24 in Fig. 7); lon. 67.97E, lat. 23.508N in water depth of – 15.27 m (G30 in Fig. 7); and lon. 68.347E, lat. 22.711N in water depth of – 30.28 m (G31 in Fig. 7).

Parameter ranges for slump scenarios considered in this study
h (m) | w (km) | d (m) | \(s_0\) (m) |
---|---|---|---|
100–300 | 6–10.5 | 250–450 | 500–2000 |
The thickness of the material has a range of [100–300 m] which suggests that a substantial part of the slope may have failed and is in agreement with a reference threshold of \(h<0.2L\) (Watts et al. 2005). From observations of the collapsed slope width geometry, we select a slump width range of [6–10.5 km], where 10.5 km corresponds to the maximum possible width from the one edge of the slope to another (B–B\('\) profile, Fig. 2d). The higher scarp in the canyon is observed at a depth of 200 m (von Rad and Tahir 1997). The lower boundary of the initial depth range is considered to be relatively shallow with a total range of \([250-450 \hbox { m}]\). Yielding a minimum factor of \(d/L=0.005\), this value comes in close agreement with the reference threshold (\(d/L=0.006\)) and the studies of real events (Løvholt et al. 2018). The characteristic distance travelled by the slump \(s_0\) is estimated by: \(2s_0=Rd\phi\) where R is the radius of curvature and \(d\phi\) is the angular displacement (Watts et al. 2005). The distance that the mass travels is often smaller than half of the length of the slump (Watts et al. 2005); here we assume a range of [500–2000 m] for \(s_0\).
The initial length of the slump, the slope angle and the density of the material are kept constant for all the simulation scenarios. As the width of the Indus Canyon is narrow (12–17 km, Fig. 1), a length of \(L=5\) km is considered for the pre-failure slump length. The length is fixed for all the landslide scenarios. The slope angle of the failure plane is roughly \(11.3 ^\circ\). Submarine landslides can occur in both steep and gentle slopes, with the largest occurrences in slopes that can be as small as \(1^\circ\) (Masson et al. 2006; Harbitz et al. 2014). The slump orientation was taken in rough agreement with the slope orientation. Considering that the y-axis has a North–South alignment, the direction of the slump movement was \(225^\circ\) counter-clockwise. The density of the slumping materials is considered to be 2000 kg/m\(^3\).
3.2 Statistical Emulation
Probabilistic Hazard Tsunami Assessment (PTHA) quantify the uncertainty in tsunami hazard and thus risks and impacts (Grezio et al. 2017). Novel stochastic tsunami inversion methods rely on a breadth of observational data (Gopinathan et al. 2017). Statistical emulators form a prominent tool in these forward and inverse problems, as they can be used to assess the results of numerous scenarios in a fast and efficient way. Emulators are stochastic approximations of a computer model (also known as simulator) and thus can help compute the probabilistic distributions of tsunami hazards. In the past few years, novel statistical emulation methods have gained ground (Sarri et al. 2012; Beck and Guillas 2016; Liu and Guillas 2017). Statistical emulators have been used to study earthquake and landslide-induced tsunami hazards in the past (Sraj et al. 2014; Salmanidou et al. 2017; Guillas et al. 2018). For instance, Guillas et al. (2018) used an emulator to predict entire time series of wave heights over the Cascadia subduction zone whereas de Baar and Roberts (2017) used a multi-fidelity approach for the Hokkaido Nansei-oki Tsunami.
Here, we build a Gaussian Process emulator to compute probabilistic results of slumping in the Indus Canyon and quantify the uncertainty of such events. Statistical emulation using Gaussian Process regression is a highly flexible and non-linear interpolation approach. It assumes that the uncertainty in the interpolation follows a multivariate Gaussian distribution in between points in the multidimensional design, so the overall uncertainty distribution can be very complex. We employ here the squared exponential covariance function as it is a standard choice, but the choice of covariance structure usually has a very limited effect, particularly here compared to the overall levels of uncertainties in the hazard itself.
4 Probabilistic Landslide Tsunami Analysis
The results of the tsunami simulations for our initial 60 slump scenarios and statistical emulation are shown in this section. The simulation results demonstrate a large variability in the tsunami amplitudes and velocities (Fig. 6). We present here the tsunami waveforms and velocities at three gauges (see locations of gauges G24, G30 and G31 in Fig. 7). Each panel of Fig. 7 includes a snapshot from one simulation (scenario 42), but a similar pattern appears across all simulations. As it has been observed in several other tsunamis (Rabinovich et al. 2006), the first wave is not always the largest in all gauges shown in Fig. 6. Unlike tectonic tsunamis whose energetic waves persist for long times (Rabinovich and Thomson 2007), the waves generated by our slump scenarios generally lose in amplitude and velocity rapidly, mostly after a few cycles; except for G30 which could potentially be due to some wave resonance. The waves reach the northern part of the shelf at approximately 2 h from the generation time, such slow tsunami propagation speed can be attributed to the shallow depth of the area (a depth of 50–100 m, Fig. 1) which yields a tsunami phase velocity of approximately 100 km/h. The maximum tsunami amplitudes are in the range of 0.4–1.5 m in these three coastal gauges while the wave velocities vary from 2 to 12 m/s (neglecting a single peak velocity at 22 m/s).
Tsunami snapshots in Fig. 7 reveal a unique pattern for tsunami propagation in the Indus Canyon. These snapshots belong to Scenario 42 (Table 2) which is a worst-case scenario with maximum free surface elevation of ca. 20 m in the generation region (Fig. 7). The snapshots show that tsunami wave fronts approximately form an ellipse with its major axis in the NE–SW direction while the minor axis strikes NW–SE. Such a shape is controlled by the deeper water depth of the canyon’s axis (NE–SW direction) which provides faster propagation speed along the canyon’s axis. Several secondary and tertiary wave fronts are seen in the snapshots which are the reflected or refracted waves by the canyon’s walls.
Trained by the results of 60 tsunami simulations, the emulator can now be built and used for prediction. Histogram H1 in Fig. 8 represents the predictions of the probability of maximum tsunami amplitudes and maximum velocities at gauges 24, 30, and 31 drawn from 5000 slump scenarios (Fig. 5) According to Fig. 8, the most likely amplitude at G30 is approximately 0.5 m with most likely velocity of approximately 6 m/s out of 5000 tsunami trials.
To incorporate uncertainty from the predictions of the emulator itself, we compute 100 additional predictions for each prediction resulting in \(5000 \times 100= 500,000\) trials. The predictions are sampled from the normal distributions that characterise uncertainties in GP predictions, i.e. the part z(x) in (1). These new predictions are shown as H2 in Fig. 8. It can be seen in Fig. 8 that the two histograms H1 and H2 are very close to each other indicating that the results are robust to the uncertainty of the predictive GP distributions: our sample of 60 initial simulations was informative enough to obtain reliable emulations. Naturally, the spread of H2 is slightly larger than the spread of H1 due to this additional level of uncertainty incorporated.
Having as guidance the probabilistic distributions of the maximum free surface elevation and maximum wave velocities, we can produce hazard maps as shown in Fig. 9. The 34 gauges show the distributions of maximum elevation and velocity over the domain. To make these maps, we consider the 50th and 90th percentiles of the probabilistic predictions at the gauges (i.e. partial summaries of the histograms in Fig. 8). The results shown in Fig. 9 are the outcomes of 5000 and 500,000 trials for tsunami amplitude and velocity, respectively. We note that these results are indicative of variations of tsunami amplitude and velocity depending on the variations of input parameters as shown in Fig. 5. The percentiles show that as the waves propagate toward the coastal areas, the maximum tsunami amplitude is up to 1 m and the tsunami velocity achieves a maximum value of approximately 7 m/s (Fig. 9). These values are not the result of a single simulation, but they are the outcomes of 500,000 trials. The most likely amplitude and velocity overall in all three gauges is approximately in the range 0.2–1.0 m and 2.5–13 m/s, respectively. Our results once more demonstrate the applicability of the statistical emulator for probabilistic predictions of landslide tsunamis, as thousands of scenarios were computed in few seconds and the parameter space was explored fully. The emulator-based probabilistic approach in this study computes 500,000 predictions in ca. 2–3 s per gauge as opposed to around 85 h of computation on a state-of-the art cluster of the numerical code when the dispersive simulation is carried out. It can thus be a prominent solution to replace the numerical runs when fully exploring the parameter space.
5 Conclusions
We produced the first realistic landslide-generated tsunami waves in the Indus Canyon, NW Indian Ocean by dispersive modelling of 60 slump scenarios. We also introduced statistical emulation to this context, in order to create 500,000 scenarios for probabilistic analysis. The slump scenarios had thickness of 100–300 m, width of 6–10.5 km, travel distances of 500–2000 m, and submergence depth of 250–450 m. An uncommon propagation pattern, having an ellipse-shaped feature stretched in the NE–SW direction, was observed including several wave fronts resulting from reflections/refractions from the walls of the canyon and propagation over the shallow shelf.
From our probabilistic analysis, the most likely amplitude and velocity at the study locations is approximately 0.2–1.0 m and 2.5–13 m/s, respectively. Hazards maps based on the emulator’s predictions compute maximum tsunami amplitudes and velocities of approximately 1 m and 7 m/s, respectively, at close to shore locations. The emulator-based probabilistic approach used in this study for landslide tsunami is a powerful tool for probabilistic hazard studies capable of generating hundreds of thousands of tsunami scenarios in few seconds. A major extension of this work would be to produce a more complete hazard mapping at the coast, given more detailed bathymetry and topography data as well as considering (probabilistically) all possible slump locations along the Indus Canyon through enhanced geophysical surveys.
