The Deep-ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunamis Project is an ongoing effort of the U.S. National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program to develop and implement a capability for the early detection and real-time reporting of tsunamis in the open ocean. Project goals are the reduction in loss of life and property in U.S. coastal communities, and the elimination of false alarms. The real-time data path begins at the bottom pressure recorder anchored at any one of five sites currently occupied in the network of real-time reporting buoys around the Pacific Ocean Basin and terminates with the end user. Data quality is monitored along the transmission path with the routine evaluation of system power measurements and message quality indicators embedded in each transmission.
