The state-of-the-art in understanding submarine slides has advanced significantly in the past decade. The advances have been mostly driven by the need of the offshore petroleum industry to understand and quantify the risk associated with various seafloor geohazards. The paper reviews the major recent contributions in risk assessment of submarine slides, discusses the challenges to geo-scientists involved in the risk assessment and recommends a stage-wise approach for performing the risk assessment.
