Dominey, D., and Dengler, L., eds., UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) Manuals and Guides 37, International Tsunami Survey Team (ITST) Post-Tsunami Survey Field Guide, 2nd ed. (PDF)
This new field guide addresses developments in the tsunami field since 1998, and the expansion of International Tsunami Survey Team (ITST) efforts into disciplines and technologies not covered in the first Guide. The guide provides a flexible framework for undertaking post-tsunami surveys, their guiding principles, and protocols and a set of best practices and templates for individuals and groups considering forming, or participating, in post-tsunami surveys.
