Welcome to GlobVolcano

Satellite Monitoring in Support to Early Warning of Volcanic Risk


GlobVolcano Project aims at demonstrating EO based integrated services to support the Volcanological Observatories and other mandate users in their monitoring activities. EO based information services will be related to the responsibility areas of user organisations and particular emphasis will be addressed to prevention and early warning.
During GlobVolcano project a worldwide selection of user organisations will cooperate with the project team in order to consolidate and harmonise user requirements .
The GlobVolcano Information System will be developed following a modular approach in order to define for each user one or more information services suitable for its volcano sites of interest. Therefore GlobVolcano Information System will include a set of key tool for EO data processing and a service provision infrastructure.
In particular,  the GlobVolcano Information System will consist of two main elements:

  1. GlobVocano Data Processing System
  2. GlobVolcano Information Service
