Tsunami Early Warning Centers become depend on several geodetic techniques to evaluate and estimate the potential of tsunamis and to disseminate correct warnings.
The system builds upon the eCall system that will be installed in all new European cars beginning in 2010 under a European Union safety initiative.
Such a system is needed, the researchers argue, because cellphone broadcast systems, radios and televisions have limited ability to warn people of Mother Nature’s wrath.
German scientists think that maddening sound is a great way to warn people of impending disasters.
Such a system would cost next to nothing to adopt, they say, and could be introduced as early as next year.


Proposed solution consists in addition of an acoustic warning subsystem (Pavian electronic sirens network) and interconnecting it with the forecasting and monitoring subsystem. The same system, the researchers say, can be used to warn the public of forest fires, impending floods, industrial accidents and other emergencies. Similarly created warning system can also be successfully used in case of danger of other natural phenomena such as tornado, fire, volcano eruption, or earthquake. The guys at the Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis are working on a way to use automobile horns to, in effect, crowdsource the network of emergency warning sirens that used to cover Germany. The Institute says the technology needed for such a system is readily available and could be widely adopted within two to four years.


If the siren is equipped with local control, it can be used not only for warning inhabitants against an impending danger, it can also be used by rescue forces directly on site to perform rescue works and communicate on the affected territory. With its Services, GGOS provides several important technologies to augment traditional tsunami warnings.
In several countries threatened by tsunami they have already built a forecasting and monitoring subsystem for monitoring of natural phenomena and this system is administered by specialised institutions.
