Map of localized peak tsunami amplitude

Caption

Map of localized peak tsunami amplitude, in meters (around Ventura, CA), resulting from slip on the Pitas Point and Lower Red Mountain fault system. The solid black line indicates the coastline. The solid red line is the statewide tsunami inundation map coordinated by the California Emergency Management Agency. Letters indicate example locations (approximate): SB = Santa Barbara; VH = Ventura Harbor; SCRM = Santa Clara River Mouth; MSB = McGrath State Beach; CIHE = Channel Islands Harbor Entrance. Inset shows the map boundary in black. Note that inundation from the model is significantly greater in many places than the statewide estimate. Image credit: Kenny Ryan, UC Riverside.
