Economically Feasible Tsunami Detection system
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
City:Scarborough, ON
School:St. Nicolas Catholic School
Abstract:After the recent tsunami disaster it became apparent that developing countries cannot afford the detection system currently in place. The system is expensive mainly because of its position deep in the ocean. I have designed an economically feasible detection system located near the shores of coastal countries, with the potential to save many lives.
