    The publication deals with the tsunami phemonon and the Seismic Sea-Wave Warning System, developed in to detect tsunamis and warn coastal communities of their approach. The tsunamis and their generation and destructive effects are described, with emphasis on .   In the wake of the tsunami there is now an Indonesian early warning system. But with parts of coastal Japan--which had the best system- Author: Michael Dumiak.

    Among the 10 primary tide stations in the Philippines, only the Legaspi Tide Station is equipped with telemetry capability, which monitors tidal measurement in real-time mode. In collaboration with he Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC), based in Hawaii, the telemetry system was installed sometime in at the station.
