Equipment Used
topographic profiling
Coarse clast tsunami and storm deposit investigation. Add to coarse clast
tsunami and storm deposit database.
Information to be Derived
Topographic profiles, georectified aerial images, coarse clast database
Documented characteristics of tsunami and storm coarse clast (boulder) deposits
at 5 sites from Keahou to Apua Point in SE Hawaii. This coast was impacted by
the 1975 Halape tsunami, 1868 tsunami, and possibly earlier tsunamis. Storms
also impact the area. Data gathered includes topographic profiles, georectified
aerial images, and coarse clast dimensions and orientations.
