O Need multiple telecom solutions ( VSAT, Internet, GRSM, radio modems, etc. ) All broadband data to IRIS / FDSN ( QC and data sharing, data curation ).
The worst case ( once ) was that a 2nd party received data from a 1st party, and 1st party did not inform the 2nd party on the conditions.
Twelve seismic stations, of both broadband and short period, including ATWS stations, and possibly others in the region;
3.4. SOLOMONS REPORT BOBBY KELLY, SENIOR SEISMOLOGICAL OFFICER, MINISTRY OF MINES, ENERGY AND RURAL ELECTRIFICATION, SOLOMON ISLANDS Bobby Kelly, representing the Solomon Islands, was finally unable to attend.
From the IRIS GSN perspective, the coverage is acceptable since coverage is specified at 2, 000 km spacing.
IRIS often runs training on data formats and management; Latency 20 sec.
Depends on packet size ( for each there is a technical solution, though it may be costprohibitive ) Antelope 1 sec.
Packets, but it is expensive; SEEDlink results in 20 sec.
AUSTRALIA REPORT TIM BARTON, GEOSCIENCE AUSTRALIA ( GA ) He described the requirements of the ATWS for tsunami warning, specifically on data networks required ( many international contributors, azimuthal coverage important ), and communications systems.
834 / site ( 10K / year / site ) for VSAT up and downlink, and return to Australia by internet, 40 sps, 3 channels BB data, 1.8. m dish.
For local or regional location, 40 sps needed 20 sps not adequate.
4.4. NEW ZEALAND REPORT KEN GLEDHILL, GNS SCIENCE, GEONET PROJECT DIRECTOR New Zealand has a network of almost 56 channel ( broadband and strong motion ) stations sampled at 100 sps.
Additional, we have more than 120 short period ( 3D ) stations in areas of higher risk and more than 200 strong motion stations.
Technical performance and details: Required data rates are a few kbps for 3component broad band data ( say 2 3 kbps for 3-component -, 40 sps );
Latency definition needed review PTWS WG Recommendations ( suggest 20 seconds maximum );
] NZ indicated from experience, 1 week of training is sufficient for installing SeisComP3, but not for understanding and using it on a day-to - - day basis.
IRIS: Can provide two-way - generic software so there is commonality, could do so within a few weeks.

40 hz, 3 channel, 20 second latency, Broadband.
O Annex III ANNEX III Recommendation ICG / PTWS-XXIII -. 7 SEISMIC DATA EXCHANGE IN THE SOUTH WEST PACIFIC The Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Pacific Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System, Acknowledging that a sessional meeting held during ICG / PTWS-XXII - I discussed the matter of sharing of seismic data in the South West Pacific, and Noting reports from China, Japan and Australia on plans to establish seismograph stations in the South West Pacific region over the period 2009-2010 -, where as some Pacific Island countries have already applied for such support and others are in the process of requesting support, and Noting that concerned members expressed their willingness to share seismic data, and that data from stations installed by Australia is available directly from Geoscience Australia or from IRIS via the Seedlink protocol, Recognising that technical issues ( such as data exchange protocols and data bandwidth ) will need to be addressed in order to achieve data sharing, Noting that data from seismograph stations is useful for research and earthquake catalogue creation and not just tsunami warning, Recognising Recommendation ICG / PTWS-XXII -. 1 on Sea-Level - Measurement, Data Collection and Exchange, Agrees that South West Pacific countries with existing or planned broadband seismograph stations share the data in real-time - with their neighbours and internationally, including making the data available to Tsunami Warning Centres, Encourages South West Pacific countries with existing or planned broadband seismograph stations to joint FDSN, use the standards developed by FDSN for data exchange and take advantage of the data archiving provided by FDSN, Decides that a Task Team be formed under inter-sessional - Working Group 2: Detection, warning and Dissemination to assist South West Pacific countries achieve data sharing, Agrees that the Terms of Reference for the Task Team are: 1.
