They have built four huge submarine bulges to the east, north, west, and south of the island. They form fans 20–30 km wide at the coastline and 100–150 km wide at their ends, 70–80 km offshore. For Oehler et al. (2008), they were built gradually by the superimposition and/or juxtaposition of products moved during landslide episodes, involving up to several hundred cubic kilometres of material. Around 50 individual event deposits have been recognized by Oehler et al. (2008). About one third are interpreted as secondary landslides, affecting previously emplaced debris avalanches.

5 km on the northern flank and a few hundreds of meters on the eastern flanks. 2 Les Alizés Volcano Les Alizés volcano is a buried volcano whose existence is still debated in the scientific community (Lebas 2012; Salvany et al. 2012). The speculations started with the discovery of a large positive gravity anomaly near the eastern coast of Piton de la Fournaise volcano (Gérard et al. 1980; Rousset et al. 1989) (Fig. 2b), in the area called Grand Brûlé. A drill hole provided the proof that the structure responsible for the gravity anomaly was actually a hypovolcanic intrusive complex, mostly composed of gabbros and cumulates (Rançon et al.
