JRC Tsunami Calculation System

A Tsunami calculation system has been set-up at JRC Ispra in order to serve Early Warning System when a new earthquake event is occurring which may lead to a potential Tsunami (magnitude > 6.5 and epicenter in a location under water). The system is currently integrated into the Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System to give an estimate of the wave propagation height and travel time within few minutes from the earthquake detection on the seismological networks.
