Entry ID: IOC_ICG_ITSU
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The International Coordination Group for the Tsunami Warning System in the Pacific (ICG/ITSU) was formed in 1968. See "http://itic.ioc-unesco.org/index.php". Tsunami-related products, services, and links are listed. Information on what to do before and after a Tsunami and classroom material can also be found.

The main purpose of the group is to assure that tsunami watches, warning and advisory bulletins are disseminated throughout the Pacific to member states in accordance with procedures outlined in the Communication Plan for the Tsunami Warning System. The ICG/ITSU is a subsidiary body of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (UNESCO/IOC). Its purpose is to recommend and coordinate programs most beneficial to countries belonging to the IOC, whose coastal areas are threatened by tsunamis. The IOC also maintains the International Tsunami Information Centre (ITIC) to assist in the work of the ICG/ITSU, and the identification of improvements to the international tsunami warning system currently operated by the Richard H. Hagemeyer Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC).
