Tsunami

View this topic in
A tsunami, also called a tsunami wave train, and at one time referred to as a tidal wave, is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, usually an ocean, though it can occur in large lakes. (Wikipedia.org)

The use of near real-time in-situ sea level to improve global data bases

B. J. Kilnosky; M. Merrifield; P. Caldwell OCEANS '97. MTS/IEEE Conference Proceedings, 1997

The University of Hawaii Sea Level Center has been collecting, processing and distributing in-situ sea level data for over 20 years. Major data contributions include the NORPAX set, the TOGA sea level data set, and more recently the WOCE "fast delivery" data set, which is a near real-time data product used primarily for calibration of satellite altimetry. The procedures used ...


Twitter Early Tsunami Warning System: A Case Study in Indonesia's Natural Disaster Management

Akemi Takeoka Chatfield; Uuf Brajawidagda 2013 46th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2013

Twitter demonstrated its value as a viable substitute to traditional communication channels during the recent disasters. However, little is written about Twitter in government for an early disaster warning system. In this exploratory empirical research, we aim to address the question: How does the government use Twitter to inform the public about disaster hazards and vulnerability? Case study and tweets ...


Emergency communication and system design: The case of Indian Ocean Tsunami

R. Chen; J. Coles; J. Lee; H. R. Rao 2009 International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD), 2009

On December 26th, 2004, the largest natural disaster in recent recorded history took the lives of over 225,000 people from over 40 different nations and displaced millions more. In an increasingly global environment, these disasters are no longer isolated phenomena and must be responded to with a global perspective. The number of casualties from Indian Ocean Tsunami is a testament ...


Multi-mission Path Re-planning for Multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Based on Unexpected Events

Natural disasters such as forest fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, hurricanes, and cyclones happen unexpectedly and bring out the worst influence on people. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) could be used under these disasters for surveillance, search and rescue. In order to have good performances in mission areas, effective algorithms are required in mission re-tasking and path re-planning to handle unanticipated events ...

R. Stosius; G. Beyerle; M. Semmling; A. Helm; A. Hoechner; J. Wickert; J. Lauterjung 2010 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, 2010

GITEWS (German-Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System) is one of the responses that were triggered by the tsunami offshore Sumatra in 2004. Since tsunamis are a global phenomenon, satellite based techniques like GNSS- Reflectometry (GNSS-R) are predestined as major components of future early warning systems. GNSS-R altimetry from space is expected to be applicable for tsunami detection. With a constellation of ...

  • Glossary

    This book offers the definitive guide to the theory and practice of disaster robotics. It can serve as an introduction for researchers and technologists, a reference for emergency managers, and a textbook in field robotics. Written by a pioneering researcher in the field who has herself participated in fifteen deployments of robots in disaster response and recovery, the book covers theory and practice, the history of the field, and specific missions. After a broad overview of rescue robotics in the context of emergency informatics, the book provides a chronological summary and formal analysis of the thirty-four documented deployments of robots to disasters that include the 2001 collapse of the World Trade Center, Hurricane Katrina, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and numerous mining accidents. It then examines disaster robotics in the typical robot modalities of ground, air, and marine, addressing such topics as robot types, missions and tasks, and selection heuristics for each modality. Finally, the book discusses types of fieldwork, providing practical advice on matters that include collecting data and collaborating with emergency professionals. The field of disaster robotics has lacked a comprehensive overview. This book by a leader in the field, offering a unique combination of the theoretical and the practical, fills the gap.

    The rise of the Indian information technology industry is a remarkable economic success story. Software and services exports from India amounted to less than $100 million in 1990, and today come close to $100 _billion_. But, as Dinesh Sharma explains in _The Outsourcer_, Indian IT's success has a long prehistory; it did not begin with software support, or with American firms' eager recruitment of cheap and plentiful programming labor, or with India's economic liberalization of the 1990s. The foundations of India's IT revolution were laid long ago, even before the country's independence from British rule in 1947, as leading Indian scientists established research institutes that became centers for the development of computer science and technology. The "miracle" of Indian IT is actually a story about the long work of converting skills and knowledge into capital and wealth. With _The Outsourcer_, Sharma offers the first comprehensive history of the forces that drov India's IT success. Sharma describes India's early development of computer technology, part of the country's efforts to achieve national self-sufficiency, and shows that excessive state control stifled IT industry growth before economic policy changed in 1991. He traces the rise and fall (and return) of IBM in India and the emergence of pioneering indigenous hardware and software firms. He describes the satellite communication links and state-sponsored, tax-free technology parks that made software-related outsourcing by foreign firms viable, and the tsunami of outsourcing operations at the beginning of the new millennium. It is the convergence of many factors, from the tradition of technical education to the rise of entrepreneurship to advances in communication technology, that have made the spectacular growth of India's IT industry possible.
