Observation and modeling of the seismic seiches triggered in the Gulf of Corinth (Greece) by the 2011 Mw 9.0 Tohoku earthquake

Canitano, Alexandre; Bernard, P; Allgeyer, Sebastien


The study reports an unusual water level rise in the Gulf of Corinth, central Greece, during the passing of the seismic waves of the remote 2011 Mw 9.0 Tohoku earthquake. The seismic seiches were recorded by a tide-gauge located in the marina of the island of Trizonia, in the western side of the gulf. The cross-analysis between the ground motion and the water level changes shows that seiching was initiated by the arrival of the earlier S-waves and then enhanced by the surface waves.
