Muscat, Oman. The LET-OBS prototype will become part of the Lighthouse Ocean Research Initiative (L.O.R.I.) by mid April 2007 and operational after system checks are performed. Data will be received from the northwest fringe of the Makron subduction Zone, Gulf of Oman, and will offer the community a reliable, long-term, real-time, and full duplex solution for char- acterizing seismically complex areas utilizing data unprecedented to date. In addition, the LET-OBS can operate as a stand alone national effort or seamlessly integrate with the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System (IOTWS) or the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC).
