1 Near-Field Tsunami Early Warning and Emergency Planning (NEARTOWARN) contract n /2011/614039/SUB/A5 Kick-off meeting of the projects funded after the call C49/ Brussels

2 Beneficiary and Partners Coordinating Beneficiary: National Observatory of Athens (NOAGI) National Observatory of Athens (NOAGI) Dr. Gerassimos A. Papadopoulos Dr. Gerassimos A. Papadopoulos Associated Beneficiaries: Universita Di Bologna (UNIBO, Italy) – Prof. Stefano Tinti Universita Di Bologna (UNIBO, Italy) – Prof. Stefano Tinti University of Cyprus (OC-UCY, Cyprus) – Prof. Georgios Georgiou University of Cyprus (OC-UCY, Cyprus) – Prof. Georgios Georgiou ACRI-ST SAS (Sophia Antipolis, France) – Dr Olivia Lesne ACRI-ST SAS (Sophia Antipolis, France) – Dr Olivia Lesne Univesidad de Cantabria (UC, Spain) – Assoc.

3 Short description of the project Tsunamigenic sources in the Mediterranean Sea region and a relative scale of their potential for tsunami generation (Papadopoulos and Fokaefs, 2005)

4 Short description of the project Near-field (local) tsunamis with travel times of < 30 min. is a hot topic. The NEAMTWS/IOC/UNESCO, is oriented to provide watch services only in regional scales (for ~1 hr of tsunami propagation time). For near-field warning it is unrealistic to rely on a unique system for the entire basin. Local systems is the most promising solution in synergy with NEAMTWS. Τhe aim of NEARTΟWARN is to develop a prototype local system applicable in areas threatened by near-field tsunamis. NEARTΟWARN is focusing in the test-area of Rhodes island, a highly touristic destination in Europe. Rhodes and Fethiye were selected as the master test-site of the STREP FP6 research project TRANSFER. South Aegean Sea, 1956 tsunami

5 Core idea of the project: local early tsunami warning system A network of Seismic Alert Devices Early warning for strong earthquake in less than 30 sec Civil protection mobilization Tsunami early warning supported by tide-gauges, decision matrix and pre- simulated scenarios Geographical Management System

6 Seismic Alert Devices

7 Components of the system Seismic warning Tide-gauge records Pre-simulated scenarios Warning

8 Major Events 2 nd month: Kick-off meeting (Athens, date to be determined) 11th month: 1 st Annual Meeting (venue to be determined) : 1st Periodic Report to the Commission 22nd month: 2 nd Annual Meeting and Information Day (Rhodes island, Greece) : 2nd Periodic Report to the Commission

9 Deliverables and deadlines - Major Events : Web page of the project : Map and Inventory of near-field tsunami sources in NEAM : A prototype Data Base for pre-simulated tsunami scenarios : 1. A network of Seismic Alert Devices (SAD) ready to operate in Rhodes and 2. A network of tide-gauges ready to operate in Rhodes : Testing of good performance of the SAD network : A comprehensive report on the sustainability of the early warning system : 1. Geographical Risk Management System

10 Final deliverable Operational local system for near-field tsunami warning Operational local system for near-field tsunami warning Seismic early warning system as well Seismic early warning system as well Sustainable system operating by local authorities Sustainable system operating by local authorities Applicable in other areas Applicable in other areas In synergy with national centers and NEAMTWS In synergy with national centers and NEAMTWS
