AbstractThe possibility that the tsunami, generated as a consequence of the large Mw 9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake of March 11th 2011, could be recorded by the tide gauge stations located in the Mediterranean Sea has been investigated. We find two kinds of transient signatures which should be attributed to the far-field destabilizing effect of the tsunami on the usual tidal components: 1) the excitation of a broad spectrum of frequency fluctuations, superimposed to the diurnal and semidiurnal tidal components, 2) the change of amplitude of the low-frequency tidal components in the Mediterranean, related to the sea surface fluctuation perhaps caused by the direct transmission of the tsunami across Gibraltar.
