Monitoring Volcanoes, Earthquakes, and Tsunamis, Session 1/4

English
Using NASA Remote Sensing for Disaster Management

NASA remote sensing and modeling resources are useful for managing a variety of disasters - including earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, floods, landslides, wildfires, and oil spills - particularly in regions with very little in situ data. This webinar covers the fundamentals and techniques of monitoring Tsunamis, Earthquakes and Volcanoes, including pre-eruption monitoring, SAR-VIEWS, volcanic ash and remote sensing resources.

Spanish and Ecuadorian researchers have developed a new methodology to estimate faults and volcanoes that can be activated in a region after an earthquake. The approach consist in evaluating changes of static stress on the surrounding faults and volcanoes and producing maps of potentially activated faults and volcanoes.

The main goal of the study is to achieve an effective transfer of knowledge and scientific techniques to non-expert users who are responsible for the management of disasters and risks.

Keeping an eye – from the sky – on volcanoes

The ‘Monitoring Volcanoes’ article made reference to a study of over 440 active volcanoes in 16 developing countries which revealed most volcanoes around the world are not monitored effectively  or are not monitored at all:  384 volcanoes have rudimentary or no monitoring, out of which 65 volcanoes  pose a high risk to large populations.
