The fore-arc region of northeast Japan is an area of extensive seismic activity and tsunami generation. On July 13, 869 a tsunami triggered by a large-scale earthquake invaded its coastal zones, causing extensive deposition of well-sorted fine sand over the coastal plains of Sendai and S ma. Sediment analysis and hydrodynamic simulation indicate that the tsunami inferred to be triggered by a magnitude 8.3 earthquake spread more than 4 km inland then coast. We postulate that the sand layer was… Expand
