The capabilities of Earth Observation Systems for the natural disaster monitoring are discussed as the case study of tsunami in Southern-East Asia in December 2004. On the basis of satellite information investigation, the remote sensing techniques role and place in the natural disaster monitoring are demonstrated. The directions of remote sensing data utilization in the framework of preparing actions, disaster monitoring and long-term risks strategy development are framed. The remote sensing information needs of the management systems for the tsunami risks and coastal zones security are determined. Some methodological approaches to forecasting and long-term managing of the tsunami and inundation risks are proposed.
