The Orphan Tsunami of 1700 tells a transpacific detective story by presenting its primary sources, Japanese documents and North American sediments and tree rings.

“… When the waves came ashore in Japan, they flooded fields and washed away houses. Samurai, merchants, and villagers recorded the mysterious event, but they observed no storm and felt no parent earthquake. In Japan, this tsunami was an orphan. …”
