DLR-Webcast: Decision Support System for Tsunami Early Warning (11:11 Min.)
On 11 November 2008, almost four years after the devastating tsunami catastrophe, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia inaugurated the InaTEWS tsunami early warning system (Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System) in the Indonesian capital Jakarta. Germany has made a significant contribution to this system. The German Remote Sensing Data Center (Deutsches Fernerkundungsdatenzentrum; DFD) of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has developed and put in place a Decision Support System (DSS) for InaTEWS, which will enable significantly improved tsunami early warning for the Indian Ocean.
