1 Taking the pulse of the planet Viability of a Multi Hazard Approach to a Regional Center in support of building an end-to-end Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System By Curtis Barrett NOAA International Tsunami Project Manager Symposium on Multi Hazard Early Warning Systems for Integrated Disaster Risk Management

2 Taking the pulse of the planet DECEMBER 26,2004-Disaster Strikes

3 Taking the pulse of the planet Design Regional System Support IOC Build an All Hazards System Build an end-to-end system Completely Interoperable System Strong Capacity Building effort System must be sustainable Work at Regional, National and Local levels USG IOTWS PROJECT GOALS

6 Taking the pulse of the planet NOAA TO DEVELOP MULTI HAZARD CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS COMPENDIUMS (MAY 2007) DEFINES REGIONAL AND NATIONAL OPERATIONS COORDINATE CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT WITH WMO AND IOC PROTOTYPE CONCEPT OPERATIONS MANUAL CONCEPT OF OPERATIONS PROCESS

7 Taking the pulse of the planet The Concept of Operations should be a document available, and relevant, to all stakeholders in the system, no matter what their background or role within the system. In the context of a TWC/RTWP, it should be as readable and relevant to high-level decision makers, as it is to the TWC manager, as it is to the TWC watch stander. The Concept of Operations answers the who, what, when, where, why, and how for the new or existing system. What is a Concept of Operations ?

12 Taking the pulse of the planet HOW DO YOU BUILD A MULTI HAZARD OPERATIONS CONCEPT ? Is it feasible to create a multi Hazard Operations Concept ? Regionally ? Nationally ? What are the specific Hazards in Multi Hazard Warning Operations ? (Meteorological, Hydrological, Seismic, Volcanic, Other )? How do you scope or determine which hazards to incorporate ? What are the key organizations involved in multi hazards warning now ? How do you coordinate cooperation and authorization? Do you consolidate organizations ? What are the legal Mandates involved? What is a good model to follow ? What is the role of the National Meteorological Service ? If you can do it, and its better, How do you build it ? How will funding be provided and maintained ? Is
