Volcanic Monitoring Applications

  • Laser Based Remote Sensing Instruments for 3D cloud base

    Cloud base height is currently measured using ceilometers, which are in reality low spec LIDAR systems. LIDAR is therefore already the standard method of determining cloud base height.

  • Laser Based Remote Sensing Instruments for Remote Visibility / Fog

    Aerosol LIDARs can provide visibility measurement, including Slant Visual Range (SVR - visibility up the glide slope), Runway Visual Range (RVR), and Vertical Optical Range (VOR - visibility at the decision point). LIDARs offer remote detection, augmenting current sensors wherever visibility is an issue, including for airports, ports, and oil platforms. Using the same principle, they are also capable of detecting incoming fog.

  • Gas analysis & monitoring systems for soil degassing

    The migration of magma towards the surface in a volcano is usually accompanied by the release of gas that was previously dissolved in the magma itself. In an open conduit volcano, most of the gas escapes through the main conduits of the volcano and then through the craters. However, a significant proportion (approximately 10%) of the total quantity of gas can escape laterally through faults and fractures that are normally present in the flanks of a volcano. Therefore, increases in the amount of gas emitted...

  • Laser Based Remote Sensing Instruments for Volcanic Ash Detection

    The 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption caused massive disruption to air traffic. Many other volcanic events are continuously causing severe disturbance to world air traffic such as cancellation of flights and closing of airspaces and airports, in Latin America, Asia, North America, Australia among others.
