  • Descrição: Multi-proxy studies of trench sediments from Futuna island, in the Wallis and Futuna archipelago, have produced a record of two palaeotsunamis dated to around 1860–2000 BP and . 470 BP. One of the most useful proxies in this study has been the archaeological data associated with occupations that immediately underlie the deposits associated with both palaeotsunamis. The reworking of the archaeological material into the palaeotsunami deposits and the additional chronological control provided by artefacts have added value to interpretations based upon more conventional earth science proxies. The identification of tsunamigenic sources for these events is tentative and based upon known potential sources. Based upon a comparison between the effects of the 2009 South Pacific tsunami and those recorded in the trenches, Event 1 (1860–2000 BP) appears most likely to be associated with a large...
