- Aspects of the 2010 Chile Earthquake Tsunami
Results of a field survey of the 2010 Chile Earthquake tsunami in Chile are reported. After outlining the general state of tsunami heights, the aspects such as the tsunami-trace distribution around a building, the inundation flow velocity, the variation coefficient of inundation flow velocity and the countermeasures to floating objects are discussed. Field data on the tsunami inundation in a housing complex area are, for the first time, indicated. Remarkable tsunami damage observed along a small river which almost runs parallel to a coastline is also discussed. The upper end level of reef whitening after the uplift due to the earthquake is proved to correspond to the low tide level before the earthquake.
