US Tsunami Contributions to IOC Tsunami Pt 1 2560 1700 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

NOAA – United States of America (USA)

NOAA commits to supporting the UN Decade of Ocean Science’s goal of reducing the time required to detect, measure, and characterize tsunamis.

NOAA will:

(1) Assist in drafting the UN Decade IOC Tsunami Programme’s 10-year Research, Development and Implementation Plan;
(2) Share advanced tsunami source detection and measurement capabilities, including seismic and GNSS applications;
(3) Promote collaboration with industry and research institutions to access critical, real-time observational data (e.g., SMART);
(4) Continue to develop and deploy advanced tsunameters (e.g., DART system); and
(5) support capacity building of Small Island and Least Developed States to use new data streams in their decision-making and for data interpretation and inversion to correctly characterize sources

Start Date: 23/03/2021
End Date: 31/12/2030
