Remote Sensing Brings Volcano Monitoring Toward Real-Time Capability

From 19 September to 5 October 2022, a volcanic eruption took place on the flanks of Piton de la Fournaise volcano in the Indian Ocean. Emerging from an open fissure, molten lava traveled downslope for more than 3 km in two weeks. Efficiently predicting the probable pathways of the lava flow is essential for the […]

Monitoring the Rapidly-Changing High Latitudes with SAR

Climate change has been accelerating rapidly in the arctic and sub-arctic. Air temperatures have increased at a much higher rate than lower latitudes, leading to enhanced permafrost melt, increased wildfire frequency, and changes to the hydrology, physiography, and vegetation of these northern regions. High latitude ecosystems are integral to Earth’s carbon cycle, and provide crucial […]
