This research aims to study the historical tsunamis occurred at the areas around Kaohsiung and Pingtung in 1781 in Taiwan, and to reconstruct the incidents, as well as to assess the tsunami hazard in coastal arears of the southwestern Taiwan. Reasoning these historical events requires not only carefully examining the literature records but also performing the scenarios that match the descriptions. The Impact Intensity Analysis (IIA) and the Impact Intensity Slope Analysis (ISA) method are employed to locate possible regions of tsunami sources in order to reproduce the events. Numerical simulations based on the Cornell Multi-Grid Coupled Tsunami Model (COMCOT) analyze the influence of different types of tsunami generated both by submarine landslides in the localized area and seismic activities of Manila trench. Finally, IIA simulations are carried out to assess up-to-date tsunami hazard in coastal arears of the southwestern Taiwan.
