Three benchmark cases are proposed to study tsunamis generated by underwater landslides. Two distinct numerical models are applied to each benchmark case. Each model involves distinct center of mass motions and rates of landslide deformation. Computed tsunami amplitudes agree reasonably well for both models, although there are differences that remain to be explained. One of the benchmark cases is compared to laboratory experiments. The agreement is quite good with the models. Other researchers are encouraged to employ these benchmark cases in future experimental or numerical work.
