Model and DART® buoy data / tide gauge data comparison

Comparison of the April 1, 2014 Iquique, Chile tsunami recorded at DARTs and sea-level gauges with model forecasts. The DART model timeseries are obtained from the pre-computed generation/propagation forecast database in real time, after fitting models to tsunami records from two closest DARTs (32401 and 32402). The plots show model data for those locations with time shifted later for comparison purposes.
