The tsunami on December 26, 2004 has been one of the strongest in the world and the deadliest of all time by an order of magnitude. The Indian tsunami early warning centre was operational from 15October 2007. It has now become Regional Tsunami Service Provider (RTSP), and will provide advisories to the Indian Ocean Rim countries.
INCOIS will be responsible in automatic detection of earthquakes and for issuing the tsunami warnings and also for the deployment and maintenance of tide gauges along the Indian coast. NIOT will contribute by way of deploying and maintaining the bottom pressure recorders and ICMAM will provide the support in modeling.
INCOIS will issue early warning, etc as and when required
