[MIS11-P06] Environmental change of marine sediment at Hirota bay, Iwate pref.
Keywords:Tsunami deposit, Sanriku coast, 2011Tohoku earthquake
The sediment that sabulosity was superior was distributed in the place shallower than depth of the water 19m, and it was revealed that nature of the mud sediment was superior in the place that was deeper than depth of the water 19m. In addition, in the area along the shore, it became clear that the offshore level had few comparative changes whereas the change of the sand mud ratio was intense. This depends on the geological feature of the hinterland, and it is estimated that related to the counterclockwise ocean current in the gulf. In the coast of present, the beach nourishment works are performed. A particle size becomes coarse at the front of beach nourishment point, and, by the texture result in survey line that is near to the shoreline, it is estimated that sand begins to flow out from the coastal area. Between Kesen River and the beach nourishment point, sediment of the Kesen River origin is confirmed, and it is thought that the sediment of naturally returns to the beach little by little.
