Climate change-caused underwater landslides could spawn gigantic tsunamis from the Antarctic

Local weather change may unleash gigantic tsunamis within the Southern Ocean by triggering underwater landslides in Antarctica, a brand new research warns. 

By drilling into sediment cores tons of of ft beneath the seafloor in Antarctica, scientists found that in earlier intervals of world warming — 3 million and 15 million years in the past — free sediment layers fashioned and slipped to ship large tsunami waves racing to the shores of South America, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
