Volcanic Monitoring

Safeguarding human lives

One billion people currently live within 150 kilometers of active volcanoes. To safeguard human lives and prevent damage to infrastructure, such as supply chains, these people need ample warning when an eruption is imminent. Monitoring the flux of volatile species, like He, CO2, CO, SO2, H2S and HCl, which are emitted by volcanoes, can help provide clues as to when an eruption might occur. Not only is it important to measure the amount of those gases, but their isotope composition is also an important parameter.
