a Domain of the numerical experiment. The red line denotes the transect. Numerical results are shown for maximum seawater level of b case 1C (20 m wave height, 20 s period, and water level 0 m) and c case 2C (20 m wave height, 20 s period, and water level 5 m). Black line denotes the shoreline. d Cross-sectional profile of the maximum seawater level (red points) above the mean sea level in case 2C. A minor discrepancy between the red points and altitude data occurs because of the difference between our own measured altitude data along the transect and the topographic data used for the numerical simulation
