Geoscience Letters welcomes submissions to the new thematic series "Reducing tsunami risk in the western Indian Ocean".
Tsunamis from the Makran subduction zone threaten nearby and distant shores of the western Indian Ocean. In 2015, this threat occasioned an international workshop associated with meeting of the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System. Now, papers pertaining to Makran tsunami risk are requested for a thematic collection in Geoscience Letters. Most papers are expected to focus on near-field tsunami risk and warning in Oman, Iran, Pakistan, and India, but contributions will also be considered on lessons in other countries.
