Abstract

The Gulf of Cadiz region of Spain has undergone many studies examining Holocene tsunami and storm deposists. Some of the studies aimed at determining recurrence intervals of events interpreted of tsunamigenic origin.
A review of geomorphologic, sedimentary and paleontological features of these deposits suggests that only a few of them can be accurately ascribed to tsunami events; instead, most of them lack conclusive evidence of a tsunamigenci genesis and should be referred to as generated by extreme wave events (EWE)
