Short summary
We study the sedimentary record of past tsunamis along the coastal area west of Alexandria (northwestern Egypt), taking into account the occurrence of major historical earthquakes in the eastern Mediterranean. Dated charcoal and shell in sedimentary units allow the correlation with the 1870 (Mw 7.5), 1303 (Mw ~8) and 365 (Mw ~8) large tsunamigenic earthquakes. Our results point out the size and recurrence of past tsunamis and related hazards on the Egyptian coastline and eastern Mediterranean.
