Machine learning may help with earlier tsunami detection
Tsunamis are giant waves that are produced by explosive underwater activity, such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. While there are some detection techniques that can warn of tsunamis as they develop, a new study from Cardiff University is focused on identifying methods that could lead to earlier detection.  “Tsunamis have a devastating impact on communities. Developing accurate methods to detect them quickly is key to saving lives,” said Dr. Usama Kadri, an expert in Cardiff University’s School of Mathematics.  The researchers analyzed deep sound recordings in the...
