... the A.D. 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami at the Sendai Plain, Japan. We found that the amount of sediment deposited on land was approximately four times greater than the eroded volume of sediment at the beach. Large amounts of the sediments deposited at the studied transect probably originated from liquefaction...

... al. 2006 ). The 869 Jogan earthquake is the oldest and largest earthquake in the region. It left a record of tsunami deposits on the Sendai Plain ( Abe et al. 1990 ; Minoura et al. 2001 ; Sawai et al. 2008 ). Numerical simulations of tsunami run-up and inundation suggest that the 869 event had...
