Perspective view of the seafloor offshore Chenega village.

Detailed Description

Perspective view of the seafloor offshore Chenega village. Light-blue patches in the intermediate basin outline sites of sediment loss between 1957 and 2014; the light-tan patch in the distal (lowermost) basin is a site of sediment deposition. Black arrows are interpreted sediment-flow pathways. White arrows near Chenega Village show the inferred 1964 tsunami travel direction, and yellow lines mark areas struck by high tsunami waves.
