Abstract. This paper reflects the experiences and results gained during the GITEWS project (German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System), which was funded by the Federal German Ministry of Education and Research between spring 2005 and spring 2011. Many of the individual results have been presented at international conferences and in international journals. The NHESS special issue offers a comprehensive overview of the key findings within the project and the first phase of operation of the warning system.
