Due to the unpredictable nature of active volcanic areas, repeat ground-based monitoring has special challenges concerning accessibility and terrain instability. The EVOSS project demonstrates how real-time operational monitoring can be enhanced by satellite remote sensing.
On behalf of EVOSS, TRE has recently processed radar imagery from the Cosmo-SkyMED satellite constellation over four volcanoes in Africa and Antille. Analysis of images was made to determine ground topography changes and generated a better-than-one metre precision elevation model.
