Location of the wave gauge stations and bathymetry data. a The green squares and triangles show the location of the coastal tide gauge and offshore wave gauge stations, respectively. The epicenter of the 2016 Fukushima Earthquake is indicated by the blue star (JMA). Solid and dashed lines indicate the tsunami travel contours in 10- and 5-min intervals, respectively. The focal mechanism is from GCMT and USGS. The red circles show the aftershock distribution within 1 day after the mainshock. Red circles indicate the aftershock distribution within 1 day after the mainshock taken from USGS. bd The nested-grid system adopted for the tsunami inundation modeling. e The computational domain for the inundation modeling. The blue square shows the location of the tide gauge station of Sendai New Port. The blue circle shows the location of the Yawata bridge, where the water level was measured during the tsunami propagation
