BARC: India's Tsunami warning system getting ready

India will have its own advanced Tsunami early warning system by the first quarter of 2007 with the first phase of the trials of the indigenously developed equipment having been completed, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) Director S Banerjee disclosed today. The equipment, being developed by BARC, will be able to predict Tsunami, which had devastated several parts of Southerm India and a few other countries on December 26 last. BARC initiated the project a few weeks after the deadly Tsunami claimed thousand of lives.

''Ours is a computational simulation for all the three phases of Tsunami source generation, its propagation and finally run up evaluation for the protect of public life and property,'' BARC Director Dr S Banerjee told reporters here. The scientists were working on the integrational and practical phase of the system, he said. The BARC has carried out significant studies with the analytical solution for a specified sea bed simulations and the scientists were finally successful after five months, Dr Banerjee said.
