Organizer & Staff
By invitation only.
The Pacific Ocean and its adjacent seas is the largest, most diverse and most prone to tsunamis of all the Earth’s oceans. Pacific nations must be prepared to face the dangers of tsunami from distant, regional and local sources. In the past, Pacific Member countries depended primarily on the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) for the warning decisions of National Tsunami Warning Centers. However, the reality of the dangers posed by local and regional sources has required Member States to address these tsunami risks and improve and expand the capabilities of the National Tsunami Warning Centers and Disaster Management Offices and engage in regional collaboration. In this context, we are pleased to invite South China Sea countries, the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation to nominate up to two candidates to participate in a Regional Tsunami Training Workshop on the ICG/PTWS PTWC New Enhanced Tsunami Products, to be held in Beijing, China from 21 to 25 October 2013. One candidate should be from the tsunami warning authority and one from the National Disaster Management organisation. The theme of the training workshop will be on "Strengthening Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for Tsunami Warning and Emergency Response (including using the new PTWC Enhanced Tsunami Products)". The training is being organized by the International Tsunami Information Center in collaboration with the IOC and the Government of China, and will be hosted by the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center (NMEFC) of State Oceanic Administration (SOA).
