Abstract
    In the aftermath of the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, many excellent tsunami awareness materials were developed, especially at the country level, to inform the public and decision-makers on tsunami hazards, risks, preparedness, and mitigation. In this DvD, the ITIC offers a small compilation of general and basic tsunami awareness materials that can be used to support the needs of government agencies, emergency managers and educators. Many of the included materials were originally developed to support countries of the Pacific Tsunami Warning & Mitigation System (PTWS) during the 1990s and early 2000s, and were then revised after the 2004 catastrophe to emphasize tsunamis as a global hazard requiring a global early warning system.
