Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book takes a novel approach to actual problems inherent in satellite remote sensing, which is a relatively new and rapidly progressing field with topical issues addressed on a worldwide basis. The originality vests in setting problem solving as the research goal through pursuing a practice-oriented and multidimensional approach to seek realistic solutions. Legal documents and literature were extensively researched and examined closely to identify where the problems lie, and state-of-the-art practice was surveyed through communication with experts to understand precisely the gaps existing between the regulations and actual practice. The proposed recommendations should be applied to actual claims in providing clearer guideline for courts to decide the case, such as the lawsuit associated with the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. The approach to the claim would be primarily based on fault; in this case, the fault of NOAA's Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC).

Keywords: Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC); satellite remote sensing
