Model Simulation Results
Preliminary model result for the maximum height of the tsunami wave at each grid point. The source model is very simple -- a rectangular fault plane encompassing the epicenter, with orientation appropriate to the local tectonics and slip value that results in a magnitude 8.5 earthquake. These results are qualitative at this point. An amplitude scale will be added after comparison with field observations.
