Tsunamis

This week we studied tsunami hazards and created a map of the Fukushima radiation evacuation zones in Japan after a tsunami caused nuclear disaster. I created a buffer layer to show the affected populations at different distances from the reactor as well as inset maps showing the areas affected by tsunami, an enhancement inset of the nuclear site, and a locator inset to show the area in proximity to the country boundaries. This week's lab was challenging and I learned a lot about mapping in disaster relief. Thanks for reading and have a great week.
