ICG CARIBE EWS WG2 Experts Meeting Tsunami Hazard

Experts Meeting Workshop on Tsunami Modeling and Mitigation

1 - 3 December 2014, Cartagena de Indias, Colombia

The Working Group 2 of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for Tsunami and Other Coastal Hazards Warning System for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (ICG/CARIBE EWS) of the United National Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO) Inter- governmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), and the Direccion General Maritima de la Armada de Colombia (DIMAR) are hosting the Experts Meeting Workshop on Tsunami Modeling and Mitigation.

Given the recent catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis in Haiti, Chile and Japan, the Caribbean region must be prepared in case a tsunami occurs and affect coastal population, infrastructure and adversely disrupt the economy of the region. In order to develop a strategy to homogenize the procedures for the creation of evacuation maps applicable to the Caribbean region, a group of experts will meet to discuss the current state of knowledge of Caribbean tectonics and seismology, tsunami numerical modelling and their validations, evacuation strategies, and real-time forecasting of tsunami effects.
