MOSCOW, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - International monitoring system of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) may lay the groundwork for a global organization for tracking tsunamis, the organization’s Executive Secretary, Dr. Lassina Zerbo told reporters Wednesday.
He indicated that the CTBTO was scrutinizing the issue in cooperation with UNESCO.
The center in charge of assistance to tsunami warning would have a complex structure for gathering information on nascent tsunamis and reporting the data to the public at large, Dr. Zerbo said.
The CTBTO has an international system of monitoring the nuclear explosions that embraces 137 facilities. The array of data collected covers seismic, radionuclide, infrasound, and hydroacoustic spectra of information.
High efficiency of the system in covering all the four spheres was shown in 2011 during the disaster at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan.
