Tsunami Warning System

NOAA monitors ocean surface height through a network of buoys and tide gauges, which helps scientists determine how high tsunami waves may be when they reach the shore. To ensure early detection of tsunamis, NOAA has placed Deep-Ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunamis (DART) stations in regions with a history of destructive tsunamis.
