Around the Indian Ocean 26 countries now have a tsunami early-warning system. It makes use of 25 new seismographic stations linked in real time to analysis centres, and three deep-ocean sensors, which consist of a seafloor-pressure recording device linked to a surface buoy. The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization is also contributing data from its seismographic stations.

The system “will be capable of improved and faster detection of strong, tsunamigenic earthquakes”, Matsuura said,
