Environmental sensing on Erebus volcano in Antarctica

Sensing technologies are widely used for volcano monitoring worldwide and deliver critical information for operational hazard assessment. The data also provide important insights into the fundamental processes that drive volcanic activity. This presentation will report on sensing strategies employed on Erebus volcano, Antarctica, reviewing key observations, their interpretation, and some of the challenges of working such a harsh environment. Technologies to be discussed include atmospheric spectroscopy, radar altimetry, electrochemical sensing and thermal imaging.
