The latest developments in global volcano monitoring.

Volcanoes can be deadly natural hazards but they have also shaped the world around us today. While active volcanoes can seem distant from the UK, the travel chaos caused by the 2010 eruption in Iceland highlighted their disruptive power even in our relatively tectonically benign corner of the planet. Volcanoes are complex and varied. Volcanologists must use all the tools at their disposal to understand them and forecast their activity and impacts. This talk will explore some of these tools including recent developments pushing our satellite capabilities towards global volcano monitoring.
