On March 11, 2011, Japan experienced the strongest earthquake in its recorded history. The earthquake struck below the North Pacific Ocean, 130 kilometers (81 miles) east of Sendai, the largest city in the Tohoku region, a northern part of the island of Honshu. The Tohoku earthquake caused a tsunami 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake.

Japan earthquake and tsunami of 2011, also called Great Sendai Earthquake or Great Tōhoku Earthquake, severe natural disaster that occurred in northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011. The event began with a powerful earthquake off the northeastern coast of Honshu, Japan's main island, which caused widespread damage on land and initiated a series of large tsunami waves that devastated many. Cutremurul din Tōhoku din 11 martie 2011 a fost un seism de magnitudine 9,0 M W cu epicentrul în regiunea Tohoku din oceanul Pacific, în apropierea orașului japonez Sendai, aflat pe coasta de est a Japoniei.Cutremurul a provocat valuri tsunami ale Pacificului de până la zece metri în înălțime.

The magnitude 9.0 Japan's Tohoku Earthquake occurred at 14:46 local time on Friday, 11 March 2011, 125 km east coast of Honshu and 380 km far from Tokyo and rattled the large parts of Japan and some part of east China and Russia with 30 km depth of the hypocenter ().This earthquake that lasted approximately 3 minutes (170 seconds) caused a 130 km long by 159 km wide rupture.
This animation shows how PTWC's real-time tsunami forecast model, RIFT, predicts the behavior of the tsunami following the 9.0 magnitude earthquake offshore. After the 2011 Tohoku tsunami attack, the international post-tsunami survey team was established and conducted a nation-wide survey [22,23] to record the tsunami run-up heights, flow depths, inundation extent and the impacts. Tsunami height measurements are most dense from previous post-tsunami survey teams and are now widely used for.

The 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Studies by the USGS indicate that the 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tremors were the result of the Pacific Plate sliding beneath Japan, with the quake's epicenter located at 38.322°N and 142.369°E, just 80 miles off the coast of Sendai On March 11, 2011, the largest earthquake in Japan's modern history struck off the northeast coast, about 130 kilometers (81 miles) east of the mainland region of Tohoku. Initially categorized as magnitude 8.9, the quake was later revised upward to magnitude 9.0 by the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) The 2011 Tohoku earthquake was a massive earthquake with magnitude 9. The plate which Japanese islands lie on, is also being affected by this earthquake, so it could be considered that seismicity in some areas will be activated. Please be ware of these earthquakes

Deposits of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami were surveyed in a narrow valley of Yamamoto Town, Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan. The area is situated at the southern end of Sendai Plain (Fig. 1a). The valley is surrounded by hills of greater than 15 m height, comprising Pliocene sandstone (Fig. 1b, Additional file 2: Fig. S1).The 2.3 km long main valley stretches roughly east-west, with sub. The 2011 Tohoku earthquake generated a huge, destructive tsunami with coastal heights of up to 40 m recorded along northern Honshu. The Sanriku coast experienced similar tsunamis and damage from the 1896 and 1933 Sanriku earthquakes, whereas the only damaging tsunamis on both the Ibaraki and Chiba coasts in the previous century were from the 1960 and 2010 Chile earthquakes
The 2011 moment magnitude (M w) 9.0 Tohoku-oki earthquake (offshore Japan) is by far the most well recorded great earthquake in history.Massive seismic, tsunami, and geodetic data were recorded by global and local monitoring networks, augmented by other types of data collected through marine surveys and ocean drilling Tohoku is at the eastern edge of a continental tectonic plate overriding a subducting oceanic plate. The GPS observations on the 2011 Tohoku M9 earthquake are the daily displacements at the stations in Tohoku and the Northwest Pacific Ocean.

The great 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake [moment magnitude ( M w) 9.0)] is the best-documented megathrust earthquake in the world, but its causal mechanism is still in controversy because of the poor state of knowledge on the nature of the megathrust zone. We constrain the structure of the Tohoku forearc using seismic tomography, residual topography, and gravity data, which reveal a close. We suggest based on observational data that the great Tohoku earthquake (moment magnitude 9.0) on March 11, 2011 likely hastened the occurrence of the latest Boso Peninsula slow slip event (SSE) in central Japan. SSEs are another mode of fault deformation than the fast faulting of regular earthquakes and have been detected in a variety of.

The 2011 Tohoku-Oki tsunami created extreme flood levels and significant inundation and destruction. Tsunami elevation runup levels varied along the coast due to offshore bathymetry (deep versus shallow), onshore topography (steep versus flat-lying), and the shape of the coastline (open versus V-shaped). The most extreme flood level occurred at.

Seismicity after the 2011 Tohoku megathrust earthquake between March 11, 2011, and December 31, 2017, with focal depths shallower than 100 km and magnitudes larger than 4.0. We estimate the parameters of the aftershock decay (in the modified Omori law) from the earthquakes of the red points located within the blue dotted quadrangle The Tohoku earthquake fault is a complex mosaic, with patches that stick and patches that slide smoothly. Though the entire fault ruptured, or broke apart, during the earthquake, some parts moved.  The results of the coseismic slip of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake indicate that an enormous strain accumulated in the offshore area due to the subduction of the Pacific plate, which changed the conventional view that there is a low potential for interplate earthquakes near a Trench as pointed out by Ito et al. and Simons et al. Huge tsunami waves associated with megathrust earthquakes have a severe impact on shallow marine ecosystems. We investigated the impact of a tsunami generated by the 2011 M9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake on the seafloor and large benthic animals in muddy and sandy ria coasts (Otsuchi and Funakoshi bays) in northeastern Japan. We conducted underwater field surveys using scuba equipment in water.
5) Recognize that drill sites northeast of the Tohoku earthquake zone, incoming to the Japan Trench, show continuous pelagic clay layers (Figures 4 and 5). And, note that areas southeast of the Tohoku earthquake zone, incoming to the Japan and Izu Bonin trenches, show a mixture of sections with pelagic clay and without pelagic clay (Figures 5,6,7) Tohoku is also a great region to visit for its beautiful landscapes and rich culture & history, with some really cool places to visit - see my post here for some of the highlights.
