U.S. Tsunami Preparedness: NOAA has Expanded its Tsunami Programs, but Improved Planing Could Enhance Effectiveness
Anu K. Mittal
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. In June 2006, there were a number of concerns about the level of U.S. tsunami preparedness. The Nat. Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin. (NOAA) leads U.S. efforts through three key programs: the Tsunami Program, which focuses on detection and warning activities; the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program, which is a partnership with federal and state agencies focusing on hazard assessment and mitigation; and TsunamiReady, which is a partnership with at-risk communities focusing on educ. and emergency planning. This report addresses: (1) the extent to which NOAA developed effective strategic plans for its tsunami programs; and (2) the status of NOAA's efforts to strengthen and expand the programs and move tsunami research to application.
