Re-examination of the age of historical and paleo-tsunami deposits at Koyadori on the Sanriku Coast , Northeast Japan

  title={Re-examination of the age of historical and paleo-tsunami deposits at Koyadori on the Sanriku Coast , Northeast Japan},
  author={Daisuke Ishimura},
High-accuracy age estimations of tsunami deposits are very important for tsunami deposit research because the recurrence interval and frequency of tsunami deposits allow us to assess the devastating impacts of tsunamis in a populated country such as Japan. The correlation of tsunami events between remote coastal areas further enables us to constrain tsunami scenarios and fault segmentation along a trench. Before the 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake, the long-term tsunami history along the Sanriku… CONTINUE READING
