The flow velocity of tsunami wave was estimated by using Particle Image Velocimetry(PIV) and Particle Tracking Velocimetry(PTV). These methods have many advantages that can be used to measure velocity under limited data such as the 2011 off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku Tsunami. The results of video image analysis are evaluated by comparing with theoritical approach. The collected video image is stabilized and rectified in the pre-processing to enhance the accuracy of PIV method, whereas the proposed theoretical method is based on conservation equation. It is found that the estimated flow velocity range is consistent regardless of the method. The method is expected to perform well for analyzing videos and providing information in tsunami cases where there is no adequate measurement data.
