Source(s):  Hindu, The

The Indian Tsunami Early Warning System (ITEWS) of the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) is in the process of setting up an elaborate system of sensors on the Andaman & Nicobar Islands for real-time monitoring of earthquakes.

Strong Motion Sensors with Global Positioning Systems (GPS) have been installed at 28 locations on the islands. Three more ‘cabins’ housing the sensors deep in the forests are awaiting permission from the environment and forest departments, according to INCOIS director Satheesh C. Shenoi.
