In the EUAsiaGrid Disaster Mitigation Workshop at ISGC 2010, Bart Bautista of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) reminded delegates that it is not enough to simply detect earthquakes and the tsunamis they produce with sophisticated sensors, or simulate them with grid computing. Countries in earthquake-prone regions must also invest heavily in preparing the population to cope with major natural disasters. This starts in schools, where outreach material like the comic book shown above is used to raise awareness among children.
