Ocean instrumentation

The Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System uses only tide gauges to measure sea level fluctuations. Due to the innovative approach of GITEWS, buoys and Ocean Bottom Units (OBU) can be omitted; they have no longer been system components since 2010.

The recording and analysis of bathymetric data for determining the topography of the ocean floor is an essential basis for modelling.
