Satellite view of volcanoes finds the link between ground deformation and eruption
(Phys.org) —Using satellite imagery to monitor which volcanoes are deforming provides statistical evidence of their eruption potential, according to a new study in Nature Communications.
A satellite view of volcanoes finds the link between ground deformation and eruption
ESA's Sentinel satellite, due for launch on April 3rd, should allow scientists to test this link in greater detail and eventually develop a forecast system for all volcanoes, including those that are remote ...
