Abstract

In this research paper we propose a model of Wireless Sensor Networksused for pre-detection of disasters. Here we have discussed the basic architecture of WSNs and how these can be used in disaster management. The major reasons for mass destruction are Earthquake and Tsunami. Millions of lives are lost owing to these. Disaster, be it natural or man-made has a catastrophic impact on lives, money and infrastructure. We do not have a sensitive system yet which provides pre detection of these calamities. Therefore we need to take serious measures to ensure our safety from these disasters. WSNs are a new technology which can be helpful in these situations. The paper also throws light on the future scope of the topic. The information derived can be stored and used for future reference to predict climate of the area at a particular time period.
