NASA’s New System ‘ Guardian ‘ To Provide Alerts For Tsunami With The Help Of The Atmospheric Rumbles.

NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Agency ) of United States has recently developed a device system known as ( Guardian) to get alerts about Tsunami from space. The device is being tested currently in the ‘Wing of Fire’ region in the Pacific Ocean. The research has claimed that in this region of Wing Of Fire about 750 tsunamis have occurred over the last 115 years. The scientists of the Jet Propositional laboratory of United States said that the full name of this Guardian is GNS-Upper Atmosphere Real Time Disaster Information And Alert System. This system will work according real time data of the GPS and its Satellites. The main focus of the Guardian system is to track the charged particles present in displaced wavy air .

Guardian Working:

Lets now take a look about the working process of the Guardian device. so what happens is that whenever a Tsunami occurs a lot of water waves are formed as a result of which air waves are also formed and are displaced in different directions and this displaced air waves releases low frequency sounds and gravity sounds . The gravity waves and the low frequency sounds will started to propagate in all the directions. within a few minutes the produced waves will reached to Ionosphere . The uppermost layer of the atmosphere is the Ionosphere and the Ionosphere is electrically charged. Now the released waves and the charged particles of the Ionosphere will react with each other and this interaction results in distorting of signals in the space .


A Tsunami is a natural phenomenon in which a series of waves in a water body are caused by the by a displacement of a large volume of water generally in an ocean or a large lake . unlike normal ocean waves which are generated by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun , A Tsunami is generated by the displacement of water from a large event. Tsunami waves do not resemble normal sea currents or sea waves because their wavelength is far longer. Tsunami is also known as Tidal wave.

Seismic Sea Waves:

The term Seismic Sea Waves is also used to refer to the phenomenon of Tsunami because the sea waves are often generated by seismic activity.

Causes of Tsunami:

  • Landslides
  • Volcanic Eruptions
  • Seismicity
  • Human Tsunami

Ring Of Fire:

The Ring Of Fire is a region in the Pacific Ocean where many volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur . The Ring Of Fire is a Horse Shoe shaped belt about 40000 km . The Ring Of Fire includes the Pacific coasts of South America, North America, Russia and some islands in the western Pacific Ocean . Ring Of Fire has continental, tectonic and oceanic plates. The Ring Of Fire is caused by the movement of tectonics plates . The Ring Of Fire is not a single geological structure . The Ring Of Fire contains approximately 750-915 volcanoes that have been active during the Holocene.

The world’s highest active volcano is Ojos del Salado which is located in the Andes Mountains part of the Ring Of Fire.

Pacific Ocean:

The Pacific Ocean is the largest and the deepest ocean in the world. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Southern Ocean to Antarctica in the south. It is bounded by the continents of the Asia and Oceania in the west and the America in the east. The centers of the Water Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere as well as the Oceanic pole are in the Pacific Ocean. The Western Pacific has several marginal sea which includes the Philippine Sea , South China Sea , East China Sea ,Sea Of Japan ,Gulf Of Alaska ,Tasman Sea , Sea Of Okhotsk , Bering Sea , Mar de Grau and the Coral Sea
