In order to observe and understand the types and amount of tsunami debris reaching U.S. shorelines, many NOAA partners and volunteers throughout Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, and California conducted monthly shoreline surveys as part of the NOAA Marine Debris Monitoring and Assessment Project beginning in Through these monthly surveys, a study on the influx of tsunami debris . Tsunami Program. The danger of a tsunami in Puerto Rico is real. Since , two tsunamis have affected their coastal region, causing death and destruction in and Although the source of these tsunamis have been earthquakes, a tsunami can also be generated by an underwater landslide, a volcanic eruption and the impact from a meteorite. Tsunami Warning Center History Pacific Tsunami Warning Center National Tsunami Warning Center Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) The era of tsunami warnings began in the United States with Thomas Jaggar's (founder of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO)) attempt to warn the Hilo harbormaster of the possibility of a tsunami generated by the Kamchatka earthquake. In the U.S., where over half of us live along the coast and more than 78 percent of our overseas trade by volume comes and goes along our marine highways, the health of our coasts is intricately connected to the health of our nation's economy. The National Ocean Service (NOS) translates science, tools, and services into action, to address threats to coastal areas such as climate change.

NOAA Tsunami Program. The NOAA Tsunami Program is a federal and state partnership dedicated to saving lives and protecting property before, during, and after tsunami impact through applied research, detection, forecasts, archive, mitigation, and international coordination.

NCEI (formerly NGDC) and the collocated World Data Service for Geophysics have compiled a unique set of tsunami-related products as part of a continuing program to support the interests of engineers, oceanographers, seismologists, and the general public.

NOAA’s Role The NOAA Tsunami Program is a cross-NOAA cooperative effort to minimize the impacts of tsunamis. Administered by the National Weather Service (NWS), the program leverages the capabilities of other NOAA operational line offices, including the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), the National Ocean.

The NOAA Tsunami Program runs the U.S. Tsunami Warning System. This includes monitoring for tsunamis and the earthquakes that cause them to provide timely and accurate tsunami messages. NOAA’s success in fulfilling this important mission relies on the ability to quickly detect a tsunami.
