We measured spatial distribution of spin pumping by nonreciprocal magnetostatic surface waves (MSSWs) using inverse spin Hall effect (ISHE) in a YIG/Pt system under local excitation. The local intensity of spin pumping by MSSWs shows center displacement of ± 0.1 mm from the center of a waveguide according to the reversal of a bias field, which is due to the nonreciprocal propagation of MSSWs over a macroscopic distance. The combination of spin pumping and ISHE enables electrical investigation of local spin dynamics in a magnetic insulator.
