WP7: Determination and evolution of eruption source parameters

  • Task 7.1: Development and implementation of new near-real time to real time source monitoring systems
  • Task 7.2: Field and air observations during eruptions
  • Task 7.3: Plume model calibration and refinement
  • Task 7.4: Interpretation and software development
  • Task 7.5: Multi-parameter system

The end-product of WP7 will be a unique multi-parameter near real-time system (Task 7.5) that estimates the mass flux and characterizes the eruptive parameters and products in explosive eruptions, providing better input to dispersion models of tephra and volatiles than previously possible. Considerable synergy will occur with WP8 in data gathering and processing. The system will be developed by combining all eruption parameters observed in real and near real-time, with initial constraining provided by inputs derived from the volcano’s eruption history (WP4), updated by field data as soon as they become available. This will be achieved throughthe five main tasks: 7.1 Development and implementation of new near-real time to real time source monitoring systems; 7.2 Field and air observations during eruptions; 7.3 Plume model calibration and refinement; 7.4 Interpretation and software development; 7.5 Multi-parameter system.
