Earthquakes & Volcanic Eruptions
The tragic consequences of both earthquake and volcanic activity are obvious, their monitoring and timely mapping is essential to aid rescue efforts. While improved prediction is aimed at reducing the impact of any such an event.
Data acquired by the Sentinel-5P atmospheric mission can be used to measure atmospheric hazards such as SO2 and volcanic ash, whch can pose a risk to human health and aircraft navigation.

In this study the scientists use Envisast ASAR data to investigate coseismic and post-seismic surface deformation associated with the 2008 Mw 6.3 Damxung earthquake on the Tibetan Plateau.

In this study the team combined time-dependent gravity and DinSAR ground deformation measurements demonstrating that are complementary to each other and their regular recording may disclose and clarify complex volcanic dynamics.
The Santorini caldera has been a source of numerous eruptions and tsunamis in the past with the most recent seismic sequence ending in 1950 .Since then, Santorini volcano was in a "quiet" phase, with insignificant deformation and limited seismic activity.
