EGU Journals: Special Edition of NHESS

12 Mar

The latest edition of NHESS (Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences) features a post-face by Münch et al. summarising the special issue which has 22 peer-reviewed papers concerning the GITEWS (German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System) project.

Münch et al. (2011) state how the idea for the special issue of NHESS was formulated at the EGU General Assembly in 2009. The papers cover all aspects of the GITEWS project including the project framework, seismology, ocean instrumentation, GPS, the warning centre, modelling, capacity building, and system integration.

At the EGU General Assembly 2011 a DVD: “We are prepared” will be shown as part of the Geocinema .
