The IOTWS effort has been launched through at least 16 international coordination meetings in which a team of experts representing the IOC/UNESCO-led meetings in many of the coastal states who participate in IOTWS. The Oman meeting was held in Muscat June 7-9, 2005, which was coordinated by Dr. Ahmed H.M. Al-Harthi, acting Director of Meteorology, Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications. The purpose of each national assessment is to help coastal states establish and operate a tsunami warning and mitigation system, assess available organizational resources, and identify capacity building needs. Dr. Al-Harthi (email@example.com) is the designated 36 MTR official Omani contact for receiving instant transmissions of both Pacific Tsunami Warning Center and Japan Meteorological Agency bulletins, which provide warnings of possible tsunami threat (See IOC/UNESCO Communications Plan Report by Hagenmeyer, 2006). Dr. Al-Harthi was encouraged by the Omani participation that included 52 representatives from 11 agencies of ministries during the three-day meeting.
