height and period measurements from sea level gauges reported as amplitude, peak to trough, or greatest value for either
inundation or runup as indicated. Other earthquakes with moment magnitude (Mw) greater than or equal to 6.5 and a depth
no greater than 100 km, as recorded by USGS, have also been included.
