Scope After the 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake and tsunami, the tsunami deposit is reconsidered as very important and useful tool for future tsunami risk assessment. However, identification criteria of the tsunami deposit are not yet established. Moreover, it is still uncertain how to use the tsunami deposit in the risk assessment. In this session, we discuss the deposits that were formed by the tsunamis generated by earthquake and other mechanisms. The talks on the risk assessment using the tsunami deposits are also welcome.
