Abstract/Summary

On 27 June 2011 a tsunami struck the Yealm Estuary, near Plymouth, and anomalous tides were experienced from Portugal to the Straits of Dover. These events were caused by a meteotsunami driven by convective cells extending from the Bay of Biscay into the English Channel. This paper explains meteotsunamis, their causes, previous occurrences and, finally, what happened on this day.
