Тихоокеанская волна 15 (Pacific wave 15)

 

Пятые международные учения Системы предупреждения о цунами в Тихом океане запланированы на февраль 2015 года согласно рекомендации Межправительственной Координационной группы Тихоокеанской системы предупреждения и снижения рисков цунами на 25-й сессии в сентябре 2013 года (Владивосток). Россия присоединится к странам тихоокеанского региона, которые будут принимать участие в учениях «Тихоокеанская волна 15» в период со 2 по 6 февраля 2015 года.

Основная цель Учения: Тестирование экспериментальных продуктов Тихоокеанского Центра предупреждения о цунами (ТЦПЦ, Гонолулу) для обеспечения более быстрого и точного прогноза цунами и повышения оперативного реагирования при угрозе цунами в Тихом океане. Проверка процедуры принятия решений с использованием новых экспериментальных продуктов ТЦПЦ (бюллетени, карты с прогнозом распространения цунами, распределения энергии цунами, таблицы прогнозов для прибрежных пунктов), позволит лучше оценить угрозу цунами для защищаемого побережья.

Последние катастрофические события в Самоа (2009 г.), Чили(2010 и 2014 г. г.), Японии (2011г.) и на Соломоновых островах (2013 г.) показали необходимость повышенной готовности в случае опасности цунами. Это важное мероприятие проверит текущие процедуры Системы предупреждения о цунами в Тихом океане с учетом использования новых продуктов для своевременного предупреждения цунами и смягчения последствий, поможет определить сильные и слабые стороны системы предупреждения о цунами в каждой стране.

В ходе проведения учений будет смоделирована ситуация сильного катастрофического цунами, при которой в странах тихоокеанского бассейна будет объявляться тревога цунами, требующая принятия решений и мер, вплоть до оповещения населения. Предложено 6 различных сценариев расположения источников: Южная Америка, Центральная Америка, Желоб Тонга, Нансей желоб (острова Рюкю), Манильский желоб и  Японская впадина.

Различные сценарии разработаны для того, чтобы каждая страна-участница могла определиться с выбором наиболее подходящего для целей учения источника цунами. Учение даст возможность Центрам цунами Службы предупреждения о цунами (СПЦ) разного уровня (национальным, региональным, локальным) изучить дополнительные материалы, которые будут распространяться ТЦПЦ в ходе тревоги и учесть новую информацию при выпуске предупреждений об угрозе цунами.

Кроме того, регулярные международные Учения важны для поддержания готовности персонала в случае реального события. Это особенно актуально в случае катастрофических цунами, которые происходят редко, но требуют быстрого реагирования. Странам-участницам рекомендовано проводить штабные учения для выявления степени понимания и интерпретации экспериментальных продуктов персоналом, а также их использования для оценки национальной угрозы тревоги цунами от выбранного источника. Доступные сценарии позволят тихоокеанским странам выбрать и обыграть событие от удаленного/регионального/ источника. В процессе «Тихоокеанской волны 15» будет смоделирована ситуация, в которой побережья стран тихоокеанского региона окажутся под воздействием цунами трансокеанского масштаба, что потребует быстрого принятия  соответствующих решений. Учения предлагается провести как штабные, без оповещения и учебной эвакуации населения, т.е., только для персонала Центров цунами.

Для российской СПЦ, по сценарию, учебное цунамигенное землетрясение с магнитудой 9,0 произойдет у побережья Японии 4 февраля 2015 года в 01:00 Всемирного скоординированного времени (ВСВ). Предполагается, что цунами обрушится на побережье Курильских островов и Камчатки, проникнет в Японское, Охотское и Берингово моря. В ответ на получение сообщений от зарубежных Центров предупреждения о цунами (Гонолулу, Токио), учитывая смоделированное цунами, будет проводиться анализ, прогнозироваться возможное развитие ситуаций, будет сымитировано принятие решений и процедур предупреждения без общественного оповещения. Тренировка персонала Центров цунами, российской СПЦ в том числе, является существенным элементом в Программе Тихоокеанской Системы предупреждения и снижения рисков цунами.

 

 

Cценарий учений

«Тихоокеанская Волна 15»

 

 Тихоокеанский Центр предупреждения о цунами (ТЦПЦ, Гонолулу) и Северо-Западный Консультативный  Центр Цунами (NWPTAC, Токио)  выпускают  учебные текстовые сообщения, с 3 по 5 февраля 2015 г.  Бюллетени, соответствующие учебным, доступны на веб-сайте http://www.pacwave.info.

Все материалы (бюллетени, сопровождающие карты с прогнозом распространения цунами, распределения энергии цунами, таблицы прогнозов для прибрежных пунктов) опубликованы на сайте ITIC PacWave15 http://www.pacwave.info (рекомендуется скачать заранее).

 

Учения Российской СПЦ будут проходить в виде командно - штабных, с выпуском учебных телеграмм. Для российской СПЦ, по сценарию, учебное цунамигенное землетрясение с магнитудой 9,0 произойдет у побережья Японии 4 февраля 2015 года в 01:00 Всемирного скоординированного времени (ВСВ). Предполагается, что цунами обрушится на побережье Курильских островов и Камчатки, проникнет в Японское, Охотское и Берингово моря. В ответ на получение сообщений от зарубежных Центров предупреждения о цунами (Гонолулу, Токио), учитывая смоделированное цунами, будет проводиться анализ, прогнозироваться возможное развитие ситуаций, будет сымитировано принятие решений и процедур предупреждения без общественного оповещения.

В 01:00 ВСВ (11:00 сахалинского времени) происходит сильное землетрясение в Тихоокеанском регионе (рис.1).

 

 

 

Рис.1. Учебная карта распространения цунами после сильного землетрясения у побережья Японии в рамках учения «Тихоокеанская волна 2015».

 

I.         Получение первичного  учебного сигнала от зарубежного центра цунами:

 

01:00 ВСВ – землетрясение.

01:04 – регистрация сильного землетрясения ИОЦ «Южно-Сахалинск». ИОЦ сообщает о Р-волне Центру цунами.

 

В 01:07 ВСВ (11:07 сах) Тихоокеанским Центром предупреждения цунами (ТЦПЦ) выпускается (смотрим заранее скаченный бюллетень с веб-сайта http://www.pacwave.info или Приложение 1) бюллетень  предупреждения о цунами  с предварительными параметрами землетрясения: 04 февраля в 01:00 ВСВ произошло землетрясение Магнитуда 8.7, координаты 38,1 севера, 142,9 востока,, глубина 20 км, восточное побережье Японии.

 

ИОЦ Петропавловск-Камчатский и Владивосток также имитируют регистрацию сильного землетрясения, и, через соответствующий промежуток времени выпускают учебные сигналы для Центра цунами, который, в свою очередь, по своей схеме распространит учебное сообщение.

Проводится учение в «сжатом» режиме времени, от двух до нескольких часов, исходя из конкретных условий.

 

II.        Анализ ситуации и передача учебного сигнала по схеме Один, выполнение соответствующих действий дежурным океанологом ЦЦ согласно регламента::

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

  * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

    * ACTUAL AMPLITUDES AT THE COAST MAY VARY FROM FORECAST

    AMPLITUDES DUE TO UNCERTAINTIES IN THE FORECAST AND LOCAL

    FEATURES. IN PARTICULAR MAXIMUM TSUNAMI AMPLITUDES ON ATOLLS

    WILL LIKELY BE MUCH SMALLER THAN THE FORECAST INDICATES.

   * FOR OTHER AREAS COVERED BY THIS PRODUCT A FORECAST HAS NOT

    YET BEEN COMPUTED. THE FORECAST WILL BE EXPANDED AS NECESSARY

    IN SUBSEQUENT PRODUCTS.

    LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

  ESTIMATED TIMES OF ARRIVAL

--------------------------

   * ESTIMATED TIMES OF ARRIVAL -ETA- OF THE INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE

    FOR PLACES WITHIN A REGION WITH FORECAST TSUNAMI AMPLITUDES OF

    0.3 METERS AND GREATER ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL ARRIVAL TIMES

    MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE LARGEST. A

    TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN WAVES CAN BE

    FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

  POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

  TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

------------------------------

   * THE FOLLOWING ARE TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS FROM COASTAL

    AND/OR DEEP-OCEAN SEA LEVEL GAUGES AT THE INDICATED LOCATIONS.

    THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI HEIGHT IS MEASURED WITH RESPECT TO THE

    NORMAL TIDE LEVEL.

  POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

  TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

------------------------------

   * THE FOLLOWING ARE TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS FROM COASTAL

    AND/OR DEEP-OCEAN SEA LEVEL GAUGES AT THE INDICATED LOCATIONS.

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

------------------------------

   * THE FOLLOWING ARE TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS FROM COASTAL

    AND/OR DEEP-OCEAN SEA LEVEL GAUGES AT THE INDICATED LOCATIONS.

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

------------------------------

   * THE FOLLOWING ARE TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS FROM COASTAL

    AND/OR DEEP-OCEAN SEA LEVEL GAUGES AT THE INDICATED LOCATIONS.

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

------------------------------

   * THE FOLLOWING ARE TSUNAMI WAVE OBSERVATIONS FROM COASTAL

    AND/OR DEEP-OCEAN SEA LEVEL GAUGES AT THE INDICATED LOCATIONS.

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

 TSUNAMI OBSERVATIONS...UPDATED

 POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

  POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

 * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------

   * A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES. THE TIME BETWEEN WAVE CRESTS

    CAN VARY FROM 5 MINUTES TO AN HOUR. THE HAZARD MAY PERSIST FOR

    MANY HOURS OR LONGER AFTER THE INITIAL WAVE.

   * IMPACTS CAN VARY SIGNIFICANTLY FROM ONE SECTION OF COAST TO

    THE NEXT DUE TO LOCAL BATHYMETRY AND THE SHAPE AND ELEVATION

    OF THE SHORELINE.

   * IMPACTS CAN ALSO VARY DEPENDING UPON THE STATE OF THE TIDE AT

    THE TIME OF THE MAXIMUM TSUNAMI WAVES.

   * PERSONS CAUGHT IN THE WATER OF A TSUNAMI MAY DROWN... BE

    CRUSHED BY DEBRIS IN THE WATER... OR BE SWEPT OUT TO SEA.

AMPL - AMPLITUDE IN METERS FROM MIDDLE TO CREST

 

HOWEVER AT SOME COASTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE NEAR THE EPICENTER, HIGHER

TSUNAMIS MAY ARRIVE THAN OUR ESTIMATION AT THE NEARBY

FORECAST POINTS

AUTHORITIES SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS POSSIBILITY.

 

FURTHERMORE THE EVALUATION OF TSUNAMIGENIC POTENTIAL AND ESTIMATED

ARRIVAL TIME OF TSUNAMIS MAY BE DIFFERENT FROM THOSE OF PTWC

DUE TO DIFFERENCES IN THE ESTIMATED EARTHQUAKE PARAMETERS

AUTHORITIES SHOULD USE THE EARLIEST ARRIVAL TIMES FOR

GREATEST SAFETY.
