New studies use ground-based, satellite and AI technologies to improve volcanic eruption forecasting

Most of the volcanic activities are rapidly evolving phenomena, and thus, hard for volcanologists and disaster management agencies to monitor and predict. In the last four decades, however, due to the proliferation of new and innovative instruments and techniques, scientists have made progress in forecasting the timing of many volcanic eruptions.

Use of SBAS to monitor activity of the Anak Krakatoa volcano

Image: ESA.

Anak Krakatoa is one of the active volcanoes in Indonesia. Considering its eruption of 23 December 2018 and the tsunami triggered by this eruption, an analysis of the deformation of the cone was conducted during the six months just before that eruption. The analysis was carried out using the “Short Baseline Subset (SBAS)” technique. This use story presents the results obtained.

Significant activity from volcanoes in the Russian Federation have been observed from space in recent months. The Kamchatka and Kuril Islands volcanoes, located in the fact east of the country, are being monitored by satellites in order to avert the hazards caused by their regular eruptions to air travel and to local populations.
