Abstract

After the devastating Indian Ocean Tsunami 2004, the BMBF-project “German-Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System” GITEWS was part of the German contribution to reconstruction and development in the affected regions in Indonesia. As there had been no system for early tsunami warnings in the entire Indian Ocean, the project partners—with the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) as leading institute—designed and built this state-of-the-art warning system step by step.
