Modelling future earthquake and tsunami risk in southwestern Japan

from Science Daily

A Nankai-induced tsunami is likely to hit there in the next few decades, says lead author Hannah Baranes at UMass Amherst, and has the potential to displace four times the number of people affected by the massive Tohoku tsunami of 2011. more
