The model-data agreement in tsunami arrival time and general wave signatures suggest that the wave recorded at DART® and at Santo Domingo tide gauge may have been generated by the co-seismic deformation from the earthquake. The model shows potentially strong impact only in the vicinity of the epicenter, which is consistent with the survey observations.
The graphics to the left display forecast results, showing qualitative and quantitative information about the tsunami, including tsunami wave interaction with ocean floor bathymetric features, and neighboring coastlines. Tsunami model amplitude information is shown color-coded on top of blue-shaded sea floor bathymetry.
