4G - Electronic Prototype to Detect Tsunami and Similar Ocean Water Irregularities

Authors(1) :-Vidyashree Kothavale

"Tsunami" Japanese meaning “harbor wave” is a natural disaster. Tsunami is a series of waves in ocean caused by an earthquake or volcanic eruption and landslide. Tsunami resembles sea waves having far longer wavelength. They resemble a rapidly rising tide, therefore tsunami are often referred to as ‘tidal waves’. The Tsunami generates wave heights of tens of meters and their destructive power can be enormous and they can affect entire ocean basins. A typical wave period for a damaging tsunami is about twelve minutes. Meaning thereby the powerful and high velocity sea waves reaches the sea shore after twelve minutes from the instant when the under water earthquake occurs. At present there are ‘tsunami warning systems’ for the detection of tsunami before it arrives so that the loss of life and property could be minimized. The present systems that are solely dependent on satellite are very expensive, the satellite surveillance fails to detect the under water movement, the present systems are less reliable, also they are not a fully 4G systems for detection of tsunami or similar ocean water irregularities. So, efforts have been made here to put forth a 4G - Electronic prototype which is an embedded system using multi-sensors providing a real time output. This proposed system is a reliable and suitably sensitive system for continuous monitoring of tidal waves. It contains more than one sensor to provide redundancy in case one of the sensor units fails.
