Abstract: The 2011 Tohoku-oki event that devastated the northeast coast of Japan gives us a rare opportunity to improve our knowledge about tsunami deposits. Before this event the geological evidence of historical and prehistoric tsunamis was generally not included in tsunami mitigation plans. The 2011 event clearly forces all those working on tsunami disaster mitigation to rethink the importance of geological data as a key line of evidence for understanding magnitudes intervals and magnitudes. The geological work related to this tsunami is of global interest. It is the appropriate time to produce a special issue that includes papers presenting a more in-depth analysis of the deposits, more highly developed numerical modeling, and analysis of high-resolution pre- and post-tsunami DEM data for the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami. The papers in this special issue provide many new insights to help us better understand the nature of the tsunami deposits, both onshore and offshore. This special issue includes 11 original papers and 1 review paper related to the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami event. The papers comprising this special issue of Marine Geology are focused on four primary topics: 1) Onshore sedimentation and erosion (Nandasena et al., 2013 (reprinted); Fujiwara and Tanigawa, 2014, Goto et al., 2014a, Koiwa et al., 2014, Schneider et al., 2014 and Yamada et al., 2014) 2) Offshore sedimentation and erosion (Ikehara et al., 2014--this issue and Kitahashi et al., 2014) 3) Linkage of offshore and onshore sedimentation by modeling (Sugawara et al., 2014) 4) Reinterpretation of beach ridge formation (Goff and Sugawara, 2014) 5) Terminology and social relevance 5) Terminology and social relevance (Goff et al., 2014, Goto et al., 2014b). © 2014 Published by Elsevier B.V.
