Abstract:

Multi sensor satellites are now capable of monitoring the globe during day and night and provide information about the land, ocean and atmosphere. Soon after the Sumatra tsunami and earthquake of 26 December 2004, multi-sensors data have been analysed to study the changes in ocean, land, meteorological and atmospheric parameters. A pronounced changes in the ocean, atmospheric and meteorological parameters are observed while comparing data prior and after the Sumatra main event of 26 December 2004. These changes strongly suggest a strong coupling between land, ocean and atmosphere associated with the Sumatra event.
