    resulting used as an adjective?

    Aftershocks continued to hit northeastern Japan Sunday, several days after a 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting 10-meter-high tsunami devastated the coastline.


    Is the word resulting used as an adjective in this sentence?
    Thank you in advance.

    Is the word resulting used as an adjective in this sentence? I consider it an adjective.

    "On" is possible, but not necessary.
