AbstractSubmarine landslides are geomorphological features that can be detected very frequently along continental margins around the world(Hampton et al., 1996; Canals et al., 2004; . From a geological point of view, they are one of the most important processes in the modeling of the continental margins, modifying the distribution pattern of canyon-channel systems and channel-levee complexes, and redistributing sediment from the shelf and upper slope to the base of slope and abyssal plains (Lastras et al., 2006). This features are very poorly understood, due to their inaccessibility, however, thanks to modern techniques of investigation in recent years, have increased knowledge about these events. In fact, by combining the information obtained from the different investigation techniques, it is possibleunderstandvery wellthe morphologies that exist on the seabed and sedimentary structures below it. Sediment instability can be detected by the presence of slides masses, scars, or fractures (Prior, 1984). It can be result from a wide range of factors and processes such as erosion, sediment deposition, gas, earthquakes, diapirism, glaciations, and wave action (Prior 1984, Locat and Lee, 2000). [...]
