Abstract

The Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) seeks to foster cooperation to increase the usefulness and accessibility of satellite imagery. In 1997, CEOS initiated the Disaster Management Support Project to assess the present and potential use of satellite-derived information for volcanic hazards mitigation. The final report of the CEOS Volcanic Hazards Working Group reviews current use of satellite data for mitigation of volcanic hazards. The report specifies the minimum spectral channels needed for effective remote sensing of volcanic hazards, together with recommendations for threshold and optimum spatial and temporal resolutions.
