With the tenth anniversary of the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami this coming December, it is timely to reflect on the progress made by Australia and the international community to safeguard nations from this most destructive and cruel geophysical hazard.
This talk will look at the historical development of tsunami warning systems, their existing limitations and what the future holds in trying to overcome the natural forces that emerge from the depths of our Earth.
This event is presented by Geoscience Australia in partnership with Inspiring Australia and CSIRO as part of Earth Science Week (12-18 October).
When: Thursday 16 October 2014, 5.30-6.30pm
Where: CSIRO Discovery Centre, North Science Road, Acton
