Tsunami inundation associated with a modeled megathrust and b upper-plate fault ruptures along the Manila Trench forearc region. Embayments and low-lying areas in Ilocos Norte are observed to be affected by waves more than 3 m high. Minimum earthquake magnitudes are estimated from inferred source fault parameters and amount of slip calculated from fault scaling relations. Contours in bold lines represent 1-m intervals. Note that the coastline resolution and extent of inundation are constrained by the resolution of the basemap used
