Equipment Used
Collect tsunami measurements including water level, run-up elevation,
inundation distance, tsunami flow direction, topographic profile, erosion 
depths, and tsunami sand deposit thickness and characteristics.
Samples of tsunami sands were collected for laboratory analyses for grain size 
microfossil content, mineralogy, and chemistry.
Box cores and pipe cores were also taken for stratigraphy.
Information to be Derived
Collect evidence of tsunami flow depth, flow direction, run-up elevation, and 
maximum inundation
