The generation of destructive tsunamis in the Gulf of Cadiz, at the eastern end of the Azores–Gibraltar plate boundary, was studied by numerical modelling of the historical 1755 Lisbon tsunami. The Lisbon Earthquake is one of the first major events of this kind that is relatively well documented by historical sources in this region. Lisbon earthquake tsunami was the most deadly tsunamis on Lisbon coasts.

The report shows calculations of wave generation, time of propagation and elevation of the waves on coastal regions surrounding the Gulf of Cadiz.
