    • >>Early Warning<< in Tsunami Early Warning Systems
    • Design and development of a generic information logistics for (tsunami) early warning.
      • Generating user-tailored warning messages (respecting area of interest, language, vocabulary, scope, message filtering strategies)
      • Mapping dispersion models to thread zones to bring the spatial reference of affected regions in an intelligible form to message recipient
      • Development / Implementation of reusable component for EWS:
        • Mapping Service (Dispersion Model  Administrative units)

    • View on the full process chain:
  • 4. My research topic is not
    • No dispersion models , no wave propagation, no seismic, fault zones, tectonic plates, no geology, no geophysics, …
    • No risk assessment, vulnerability studies, capacity building, risk awareness
    • But all of it has to be integrated!
