No High Tech Tsunami Sensors Until Mid-2006

I’m sure they’re working as fast as they can, but…

Network of sonar sensors to provide tsunami warnings for 27 countries.

A network of sonar sensors able to instantly transmit data from the Indian Ocean floor to tsunami warning centers in 27 countries could be in place within a year, international experts said on Friday. UNESCO is establishing the system through its Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission’s Intergovernmental Coordination Group (ICG), and is on track to finish it by mid-2006.

They need to do whatever possible, technically and scientifically, to put a reliable system in place before the next tragedy occurs.
