Knowledge Capsules: Volcanic Infrasound

Volcanic Infrasound follows reserachers from the Volcano Group as they install infrasound sensors in a natural reserve in the middle of urban Singapore. These solar-powered stations capture the infrasound created by volcanoes in the region and detect and measure eruptions as they unfold. Southeast Asia is a densely populated region with a few mega-cities located within 300 kilometers of active volcanoes. The volcanic infrasound can be used to detect and measure eruptions as they unfold, and increase the safety of civil aviation. Volcanic Infrasound is our latest Knowledge Capsule and it shows some of the EOS infrasound sensors located in a natural reserve in the middle of urban Singapore.
