Seismic Network in Maldives
After the 2004 Tsunami, National Meteorological Centre started to develop its early warning system and introduced seismology in to the centre. Through the German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning Sysytem (GITEWS) project, a broadband seismometer was installed in Hdh Hanimaadhoo and Gdh Kaadedhhoo. Seismic data collected from these stations are transferred to the main hub in Jakarta, Indonesia via satellite antenna installed at the stations. The stations are solar powered and the VSAT modem is mains powered with backup battery installed. For backup communication, a (Broadband Global Area Network) BGAN is installed in each station.
