DESCRIPTION
The objective of an earthquake early warning system is to rapidly detect the initiation of an earthquake, estimate the level of ground shaking intensity to be expected, and issue a warning before significant ground shaking starts. A network of seismic sensors detects the first energy to radiate from an earthquake, the P-wave energy, and the location and the magnitude of the earthquake is rapidly determined. Then, the anticipated ground shaking across the region to be affected is estimated. The system can provide warning before the S-wave arrives, which brings the strong shaking that usually causes most of the damage. Warnings will be distributed to local and state public emergency response officials, critical infrastructure, private businesses, and the public. EEW systems have been successfully implemented in Japan, Taiwan, Mexico, and other nations with varying degrees of sophistication and coverage.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES 
1. Explore the objective of an earthquake early warning system to rapidly detect the initiation of an earthquake, estimate the level of ground shaking intensity to be expected, and issue a warning before significant ground shaking starts
2. Improve, expand, and lower the costs of the existing earthquake early warning systems
 3. Technology, that gives people time to take cover and creates automated responses for businesses, transportation & machinery to prevent massive damage 
4. Distribution of Warnings to local and state public emergency response officials, critical infrastructure, private businesses, and the public
