Analysis and monitoring of active African volcanoes

Fogo3D460i2_34582-36586_BlueSea

SAMAAV: InSAR analysis and monitoring of active African volcanoes using ERS and ENVISAT data. This projects aims at studying and monitoring the volcanic or volcano-tectonic activity in 4 regions in Africa using satellite radar interferometry (InSAR): the Mt Cameroon, the Nyiragongo and Nyamulagira (DR Congo), the Oldoino Lengai (Tanzania), and Fogo (Cape Verde). Those are.. Lire la suite

CORSAIR: Space geodesy by means of SAR Interferometry (InSAR) at the pan-African continental rifting zone

ALOS_Asc_mix

The East African Rift is a 6000 km long faulted structure that extends from Ethiopia to Mozambique and where the African plate is splitting in two. It is the largest continental rifting zones on Earth but it is also the less known plate boundaries. The CORSAIR project aims at studying local-scale magmatism (<50 km) and.. Lire la suite

GORISK: The combined use of Ground-Based and Remote Sensing techniques as a tool for volcanic risk and health impact assessment for the Goma region (North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo):

IMG_0003_NdO

GORISK is a multidisciplinary project oriented towards the implementation and improvement of ground-based and spaceborne tools for volcanic risk and health impact assessment in the Goma region (North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo). This area (potentially 1 million people) is threatened by two highly active volcanoes: the Nyiragongo (producing among the most fluid lavas in.. Lire la suite

GRAND: Greater Region Anthropogenic and Natural Deformation Monitoring

The project aims at using advanced processing methodology for mapping natural and anthropogenic ground deformation in complex environments with Differential Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar. This will be applied in Luxembourg and the Great Region (i.e. French and German bordering area) though these methods will also be used on other targets such as active African volcanoes..
