[HSC07-03] The relationship between tsunami damage by the 2011 off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku Earthquake and geographical condition such as landform clasification and land use on Sanriku Coast.
Keywords:Tsunami damage, landform classification, land use
In the bays where all inundated area are completely destroyed (Rikuzen-Takata City and Ohtsuchi Town), the tsunami depths at coastline were over 10 meter. In the bay where tsunami damage degree decrease in inner land area (Ohfunato City, Kamaishi City and Miyako City), the tsunami depths at coastline were under 10 meter. The tsunami damage levels are closely related to inundation depths. Tsunami depths were about 4m at a boundary of building lost area (Rank1) and destroyed area (Rank2). Tsunami depths were about 1.5m at a boundary of destroyed area (Rank2) and inundated area (Rank3). The difference in landform of coastal areas influence the damage level of the hinterland area. And the tsunami damage degree was suddenly decrease at micro high lands of artificial structures and artificial cannels.
