Abstract: This sixth edition of the Submarine Mass Movements and Their Consequences volume, coincident with the seventh eponymous conference includes 61 papers that span a variety of topics and are organized into nine parts as follows: (1) Submarine mass movement in margin construction and economic significance; (2) Failure dynamics from landslide geomorphology; (3) Geotechnical aspects of mass movement; (4) Multidisciplinary case studies; (5) Tectonics and mass move- ment processes; (6) Fluid flow and gas hydrates, (7) Mass transport deposits in modern and outcrop sedimentology; (8) Numerical and statistical analysis; and, (9) Tsunami generation from slope failure. The breath and quality of this body of work underpins a positive outlook and our enthusiasm for the future direction of research in this area of science as it moves towards ever more detailed analysis and monitoring. We also emphasize in this volume the need to look at mountain-scale outcrops to better understand our seismic imaging, to carry out statistical studies that draw on global data sets to better constrain broad behavioural characteristics, and to undertake numerical modelling to understand the sensitivity of a range of natural slopes.
