This resource is a Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) web page describing the system of warnings of tsunami threats to Australia's coastline and offshore territories. The resource explains the role of the Australian Tsunami Warning System (ATWS) project, and the Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre (JATWC) operated by Geoscience Australia and the Bureau. It shows the steps and schedule of the tsunami warning process and explains categories of threat levels within tsunami warnings, using a map of Western Australia as an example. The resource also includes a sample tsunami warning summary and an accompanying sample community response advice, consistent with the warnings displayed on the map.
