Symposium on tsunami-warning communications

A one-day symposium titled “Enhancing Tsunami Warning Along North America’s Northwest Coast: Reaching the Last Mile” was organized and held on June 8, 2010 at the Institute of Ocean Sciences near Sidney, British Columbia. The Symposium was designed to encourage discussion between experts and stakeholders about emergency communication systems, to identify strengths and weaknesses of current systems, and to improve applications of these systems.

A final report is now available - Tsunami Symposium Report. More information can also be found at the project’s website at http://www.sfu.ca/tsunami/.
