Table 2 Magnitude estimation for finite fault models (U. S. Geological Survey 2020) of tsunami earthquakes and two major earthquakes around Japan. The moment magnitude \(M_w\), magnitudes based on highpass-filtered displacement (cutoff period 200 s) (\(M_{D200}\)), highpass-filtered integrated displacement (cutoff period 200 s) (\(M_{ID200}\)), bandpass-filtered displacement (passband 200–400 s) (\(M_{D200-400}\)), and multiband amplitude distribution (\(M_{BA}\)) are compared
