On October 1, 2019, the University of Malaga became the first Spanish partner of the ARISTOTLE-ENHSP consortium, a project funded by the EC DG-ECHO (European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations of the European Commission). The objective of this project is to provide 24*7 scientific advice on various hazards and natural disasters to the Emergency Response Coordination Center (ERCC). The role of UMA in ARISTOTLE project is the implementation, in collaboration with the Italian INGV, of the Tsunami Service. The objective of this service is to provide an early estimate of the magnitude of a tsunami event anywhere in the world and in the shortest possible time.|
