Location of the study area. Dark gray area denotes the Tohoku region. Tsunami source models of the 869 Jogan (Sawai et al. 2012), 1611 Keicho (Hatori 2009), 1896 Meiji Sanriku (Tanioka and Satake 1996; Tanioka and Seno 2001), 1933 Sanriku (Kanamori 1971), and 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquakes (Ozawa et al. 2011) are shown by colored lines off the Sanriku coast. The broken lines indicate that the extent of the rupture model remains unknown. Thickness distributions (cm) of the Towada-a (To-a) tephra of AD 915 (Machida and Arai 2003) and the Baegdusan-Tomakomai (B-Tm) tephra of AD 946 (Machida and Arai 1992) are shown by broken orange and purple lines, respectively
