Data: Onagawa town urban inundation experiments


We here provide open data for tsunami inundation experiments targeting Onagawa Town for the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake Tsunami. Onagawa Town at Miyagi Prefecture was severely inundated due to catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in 2011. We had conducted tsunami urban area inundation experiments with 1/250 scale city model using HyTOFU experimental facility in DPRI, Kyoto University.
