This report describes the tsunami survey performed in Chile, 1 month after the 27 February 2010 Mw 8.8 Chile earthquake. The survey was done in the frame of the International Tsunami Survey Team in Chile (ITST-Chile), under the UNESCO coordination. The primary aim was to collect data for assessing the accuracy of tsunami inundation models and to understand the complex nearshore wave dynamics that may affect tsunami inundation and run-up as those relate to damages on buildings, infrastructure and the natural environment. The report also describes the methodology followed during the survey and the background information necessary to understand the measurements collected during the survey; a brief description of the Field Reporting Tool, used during the mission, is included.
