DLR technology and expertise for a tsunami early warning system in Indonesia
The propagation times of tsunamis in Indonesia are very short due to the geological conditions in the region. This means that a tsunami early warning is only useful when it is generated quickly and automatically. DLR's Decision Support System (DSS) will help to make this possible. Quick and effective evacuation of people out of the affected coastal areas before catastrophe strikes is equally important. DLR therefore also performed a risk assessment, investigating the possible consequences of a tsunami impact on the coast.
