Japan is still recovering from the March 2011 magnitude 9 earthquake and tsunami that struck the north eastern coast in the Tohoku region north of Sendai. Nine years later the impacts are still evident, and the enormous recovery program includes major sea walls and community relocations that have changed the region dramatically.
Mark Ivamy undertook a reconnaissance of the area in October 2019 in the company Professor Hiroyuki Nomoto (Toyko University) and brings us an overview of the stories of survival, the impacts that remain and the protection measures now in place.
Mark is a coastal scientist and senior hazards planner with Bay of Plenty Regional Council responsible for region wide natural hazard research, evaluation and risk reduction measures. Mark’s background as a designer of many of the coastal protection structures we see in Tauranga gives him a unique perspective when it comes to reconnaissance of the north eastern Japan coast which he did in 2019.
