Fig. 4.

Comparisons of the observed (red curves) and synthetic (blue curves) tsunami waveforms computed from the estimated slip distribution. Time ranges shown by solid curves are used for the inversions; the dashed parts are not used for the inversions, but shown for comparison. Note the same vertical scales for bottom-pressure gauges (the upper left two columns), GPS wave gauges (upper central two columns) and coastal tide and wave gauges (upper right one column and bottom columns). See Figs. 1 and 3(a) for the station locations.
