Hawaii and Tsunami Warnings: How Can We Do This Better?
By Sara Lin 11/19/2012

Courtesy of NOAA's Pacific Marine Environment Lab
Every time Hawaii issues a tsunami warning, it's an "all or nothing" evacuation.

From Waianae to Hawaii Kai, everyone who lives within a potential tsunami inundation zone heads for the hills — or the other side of the evacuation line, at least.

But federal scientists have developed new tsunami forecasting models that can accurately predict where a wave will hit, and where it will flood. They've also designed new buoys that could help the tsunami warning center fill the gaps in its net.

So why hasn't Hawaii embraced the new technology?

The Oct. 27 tsunami warning threw Hawaii into a panic with just three hours between the evacuation call and when the first wave hit.

Now, some say these new technologies are worth a closer look. . . .

Predicting Where the Wave Will Hit

Tsunami forecasting is a very new technology, one that's come into vogue since the 2004 Indonesian tsunami that killed 230,000.

Eight years later, scientists have developed a tsunami flood forecasting model that they've tested on more than 40 events this year alone.

"This idea to forecast tsunami flooding has been the holy grail of tsunami research," said Vasily Titov, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Center for Tsunami Research. "This idea has been around for years, but the problem is we've never had models accurate enough and never had data. But now we do."

With the Oct. 27 tsunami, Titov said the models did what they were supposed to do.

"We nailed the amplitudes pretty well before the first tsunami arrived," he said. "But it didn't ease the weight of the decision to evacuate or not evacuate. It was a borderline event, it was difficult to call.". . .

This means the buoys are picking up movement, when they event usaully there is no tsunami affliated with it but in most cases it will event after or before a 6 + earthquake (it can be hours or days before and after the eq occurs), in a tsunami or large eq event you will normally see many buoys start eventing in the surrounding area

Buoy info
[link to www.bom.gov.au]
 Quoting: quirk


There are times the buoy events due to malfunction, swarm of eq's in the same area (such as the latest Indonesia swarm in which there were many 4 and 5's but nothing major), and it occasionally events with nothing major occurring (these are my observations from studying the buoys and event histories and readings for the last 2 years), Volcaoe activity has to be considered as well.
 Quoting: quirk


Much thanks to both of you for clearing it up. I was kinda thinking that this might just be our next 'doom storm' but most likely, it wouldn't be. No GLP effect means higher chance of that happening so...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45881622


Whenever you see two in event mode that start eventing (not after a major eq), it is a cause to be alert that high probaility of movement on the way in the near future, unfortunately not even close to an exact science in to predicting a time or place. . . maybe some day?

Refresher Buoy Info:
Info Re Buoy System:

The system has two modes - 'standard' and 'event'. The system generally operates in 'standard' mode, where it routinely collects sea level information and reports via satellite at relatively low frequency transmission intervals (i.e. every 15 minutes). This helps to conserve battery life and hence extend the deployment life. The tsunami buoy is triggered into 'event' mode when the pressure sensor first detects the faster moving seismic wave moving through the sea floor. It then commences reporting sea level information at one minute intervals to enable rapid verification of the possible existence of a tsunami. The system returns to standard mode after 4 hours if no further seismic events are detected.
[link to www.bom.gov.au]


When in EVENT mode, sometime there is a malfunction, rogue wave or minor sea level adjustments. When reviewing the data if a major seal level adjustment is being recorded that is when it becomes relevant to possible quake activity. Also, Many of the buoys have gone off after a major earthquake but a tsunami didn't occur and sometimes they go into EVENT mode and nothing happens.

Tsunamis can travel at speeds above 500 miles per hour, often at heights that are barely detectable in the open ocean except for areas covered by specially designed monitoring buoys. It is when tsunamis near the coast that they become most dangerous, since the waves pile up due to their interaction with the coastal plain, often resulting in a period of erratic seas and towering waves that can last for as long as an hour.

This animation from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is a near real-time animation for the tsunami from northern Chile. According to NOAA, it shows simulated tsunami wave propagation for 30 hours followed by an "energy map" showing the maximum open-ocean wave heights over that period.

Small tsunami waves hit California following Chile earthquake

April 2, 2014, 12:47 p.m.
Small tsunami waves and other unusual “water movements” have arrived on the coast of California following an 8.2 earthquake that struck Chile’s northern coast Tuesday.
Although officials stressed that no tsunami warning had been issued for California or the West Coast, the abnormal wave heights, tide fluctuations and current changes could surprise boaters Wednesday, they said.

Waves from the earthquake reached Hawaii Wednesday morning, but none were bigger than 1.9 feet, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. Still, experts were asking people to stay out of the water.

"What we're really worried about is currents," said Gerald Fryer, a geophysicist with the PTWC, in a Reuters report. "And occasionally you get a larger wave so it sweeps up the beach or something. If you're not ready for it you can get into difficulty and if you're in the water you can get banged about."

The Japan Meteorological Agency issued tsunami advisories for the Pacific coast of Hokkaido and Honshu, two of its four major islands, at 3 a.m. Japanese time Thursday (2 p.m. EDT Wednesday). The advisories also included the Izu and Bonin island chains well south of the mainland.

As in Hawaii, the Japanese advisory warned people to stay out of the water. A tsunami of up to 1 meter (3 feet) was forecast to reach parts of Japan as early as 5 a.m. local time (4 p.m. EDT Wednesday).

...


The Buoys going into Event Mode somewhat match this time frame and gives us an idea if it were a major tsunami what to expect

The bouys are recording the movement and there could be isolated rogue waves, surges, etc. in the areas where the bouys have evented. . .

Following the map, Hawaii Buoy may start eventing within the next couple of hours. . .

We are getting a real time visual from the Buoys of the time it took the eq energy wave to travel across the ocean, very interesting. . .
