A tsunami early warning system is designed and implemented, focusing on the Italian coast. It is composed of:
seismic network with real-time acquisition;
system for rapid data analysis for the characterization of the source parameters;
early assessment of the expected tsunami;
real-time marine monitoring system based on mareographic and pressure measurements to the seabed, and on real-time automatic recognition algorithms of the signal for tsunamigenic earthquake;
alert management and communication.
In collaboration with the Subproject 6, the Action implements education and communication strategies, instructing people how to deal properly with a tsunami.
