The effect of the generation of tsunami waves caused by collapse of the continental slope and by formation of a submarine landslide near the east coast of Sakhalin Island is reproduced within the framework of a hydrodynamic model. The calculations performed using the numerical hydrodynamic model showed that such a submarine landslide can generate a tsunami wave up to 18 m high on the Sakhalin coast.
