This report is the published product of a study by the British Geological Survey (BGS) produced as a contribution to EU Framework 6 STREP project TRANSFER Work Package 1. TRANSFER (Tsunami Risk and Strategies for the European Region) is a project examining the tsunami processes in the European area to assess the tsunami hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment, and to identifying how the best strategies to reduce tsunami risk can be delivered to local communities and civil defence agencies. This catalogue attempts to list tsunami events and events previously reported as possible tsunamis detected around the coast of the UK during the Holocene. It includes events detected by their geological evidence, human observations or by measurements recorded by tidal gauges.
