Understanding Spatial Variations of Tsunami Flooding

Abstract

This chapter examines damage maps produced at the time of a large-scale disaster and their roles. Materials for examination are our tsunami inundation area map prepared using posttsunami aerial photographs, and mapping results of the tsunami run-up heights measured using a digital elevation model afterward. Based on these examinations, we reveal the remarkable spatial variation in the range and height inundated by the tsunami, and discuss its scientific significance and lessons for disaster management.
