Flow direction indicators, here trees knocked down and bent over by the tsunami, indicated a strong onshore flow (235 degrees) at Kalmunai. Flow direction is important for determining what direction the tsunami travelled as it was modified by the nearshore underwater topography. This information is useful for ground-truthing tsunami inundation models.
