A Tsunami Warning System Will Unite Black Sea Countries
Alexander Frolov, head of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring of Russia in his latest speech reminded of the need for an International Tsunami Warning System, which should involve all Black Sea countries.
Tsunami threat poses major danger to the shallow shores of Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Turkey, Russia and Georgia, said Frolov.
The system should consist of four components, including an earthquake-monitoring system, wave propagation models, automatic waves surveillance and warning systems.
It is too early to announce the exact cost and implementation timeline of the future integrated system, but the estimated costs should not be very high, said Frolov.
Frolov believes that such system should also be implemented in the Okhotsk Sea region, where its creation can take up to two years.Источник: interfax-russia.ru
