RAPID REPORTING OF TSUNAMIS BY GPS ON WAY !

GOOD NEWS FOR THE WORLD’S CITIZENS LIVING NEAR OUR LARGEST OCEANS. TWO OF THE MAJOR SCIENTIFIC  ORGANISATIONS ARE LOOKING VERY HARD AT GPS TO SPEED-UP WARNING ALERTS FOR INCOMING LARGE DESTRUCTIVE  TSUNAMIS.

 NASA & GERMANY’S RESEARCH CENTRE FOR GEOSCIENCES ARE AWARE OF ALREADY SITED GPS STATIONS THAT CAN, VERY QUICKLY, PICK-UP EARTH CRUST MOVEMENT WHEN QUAKES OCCUR.  WITH COMPUTER MONITORS IN HIGH RISK LOCATIONS, THE CURRENT DELAY IN ALERTING A POPULATION,
CAN BE CUT BY APPROXIMATELY FIFTEEN MINUTES. THIS COULD ALLOW A LARGER NUMBER OF CITIZENS TO REACH  HIGHER GROUND. HOPEFULLY, THIS MORE PROMPT ALERT WILL SAVE LIVES.
