Anniversary of Great Tohoku Japan earthquake and tsunami (20110311)

Today is the anniversary of the catastrophic great Tohoku Japan earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011. While I am not an expert of subduction systems nor tsunamigenesis, I was of course interested in the event and prepared some lectures about it. While there are many better and newer illustrations, I wanted to share the materials.

The first presentation was at the Arizona Science Center in 2011. Here is the folder of the materials.

I prepared a lot of content for a series of lectures at IT Bandung in Java that I presented in 2013 with the help of my former student Dr. Gayatri Marliyani. There is much high quality material at IRIS (some of which I have included). The main materials are in these three folders:

Subduction I--has the most on the 3-11 Japanese earthquake. Subduction II--mostly about Sumatran research. This has youtube lecture recording. Tsunami--includes 2004 and Cascadia material. This has youtube lecture recording | Impressum
