Maps showing a the location of study area; b survey site, run-up height, flow height, inundation limit, and location of photograph sites in Fig. 2; and c topographic type and sampling site for analysis. a The inundation area of the 2011 tsunami is based on data provided by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan (GSI). b, c The aerial photographs taken on the day after the tsunami (March 12, 2011) and the shoreline location were provided by GSI. Inundation limit, run-up height, and flow height were measured for this study and by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake Tsunami Joint Survey Group (TETJSG). c The contour line is based on the 2 m grid digital elevation model (DEM) data after the tsunami provided by GSI. No erosion/deposition means that no erosion of pre-existing sediments or no deposition caused by the 2011 tsunami
