Learn how volcanologists in Montserrat and Iceland are predicting the location, frequency and severity of future volcanic and seismic events. Get access to the very latest equipment used for deformation, seismic and environmental monitoring, from helicopters to rapid response radar trailers used to predict the location, direction and size of ash particles in Iceland. We see the type of data that can be recorded, how it is analysed and then used to predict future geo-hazards; map exclusion zones; plan for evacuations; and model ash cloud dispersal for the aviation industry.
