22 The impact of the Storegga Slide tsunami would have clearly had a considerable effect on the landscape and on the inhabitants. These lowlands with their gently inclined coastline, salt marshes and mud-flats were especially vulnerable to the tsunami, the force of which would have funnelled up river valleys. indd 40 05/05/2015 09:29 Shaping the World with Ice and Sea 41 succeeded by major, sometimes catastrophic, changes. Sea-level rise, as with other complex and open systems, is dynamic and non-linear, producing multiple, and essentially unpredictable, effects.

Along the coastal areas the first sign of it would have been the withdrawal of water; the sea level dropping by perhaps twenty metres, followed by the first wave. The size of the wave varied depending on the region and with those closest to the slide being hit the hardest. Along the Norwegian coast, opposite the slide, archaeological evidence suggests the tsunami was ten to twelve metres high, while on the east coast of Scotland it may have been three to five metres high. Deposits from the Faroes and Shetland Islands suggest that the wave may well have exceeded the unimaginable height of twenty metres.

The most prominent negative feature here is the Hurd Deep, a fifteen-kilometre-long narrow linear northeast to southwest depression. It lies just north of the Channel Islands and would have formed a lake during the Mesolithic period. Another deep is Nab Hole – a three-kilometre by three-kilometre depression to the east of the Isle of Wight. The English Channel existed as an embayment in the early part of the Holocene, advancing along the Channel River over time as sea levels rose. At some stage in the eighth millennium bc it flooded the Dover Gorge, creating the Dover Strait.
