Impact Analysis Map - Inundated areas [Region 1, 2, 3] (Tsunami in Japan on 11/03/2011)

Originally published


This map aims at identifying the population affected by the tsunami based on the JRC SWAN propagation and HyFlux2 inundation models in the Sendai area (region 2) and the areas north (frame1) and south (region 3) of Sendai. The HyFlux2 model (blue) is available for the whole East coast of Honshu (regions 1, 2 and 3); satellite based information is currently only available for the Sendai area (region 2), where HyFlux2 results correspond well. The bars on the right shows the maximum wave height at the coast calculated by HyFlux2.
