India to soon begin forecasting reach of tsunami waves in-land 6.5.2018 General News
India would now be able to foretell the distance a destructive sea wave would travel after it breaches the coast, a prediction that can greatly reduce loss of life and property. The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services, under the Ministry of Earth Sciences, has developed a model to predict how far sea water would travel after violating natural boundaries, INCOIS Director SSC Shenoi said. This would be a Level-3 alert under India's Tsunami Early Warning System, put in place after the deadly 2004 tsunami. The Level-1 tracks the magnitude of a tsunami and Level-2 generates an alert about a potential tsunami and wave height. On December 26 in 2004, a magnitude 9.1 earthquake struck beneath the Indian Ocean near Indonesia, triggering one of the biggest tsunamis the world had ever seen. It claimed more than 2 lakh lives in South and Southeast Asian nations. During the tsunami, deadly waves of up to 30 metres lashed at the coast. "But we were not able to tell how much will ..

Strong winds in Atlantic create high waves off Indian coasts over 10K km away 27.4.2018 General News
Strong winds in the Atlantic Ocean, more than 10,000 kms from the Indian coasts, have given rise to high energy waves in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal prompting the government to issue alerts for several states over last one week. Though, these high energy waves, which may rise up to 2-3 metres and are perilous, experts say, because of their capacity to breach the coast, did not cause any death, property and houses were destroyed, officials said. The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), a unit of the Ministry of Earth Sciences, issued 'swells' alerts to states including Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Odisha, besides Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the Lakshadweep archipelago.

Meteorology: powered by scientific advancements 26.3.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Thirteen years ago, on December 24, 2004, over 2,30,000 lives across 14 countries bordering the Indian Ocean were swept away. The devastating tsunami also caused huge damages to property in the affected countries. The reason of this tsunami was attributed to a major earthquake that measured 9.3 in the Richter scale. Until then, not many around the world recognised or had even heard of the word tsunami since it had occurred only about five or six times over the last few centuries. Literally meaning harbour wave in the Japanese language, the word now refers to a large wave in the ocean, usually caused by an earthquake or volcanic eruption. Apart from the sheer magnitude, what made matters worse about the 2004 tsunami was our lack of preparedness. None of the affected countries had any system for early warning of such tsunamis, nor was there a plan for emergency response. There was no information available on real-time monitoring of earthquakes or the changes in sea level. Hence, the huge waves caught us ...
