Volcan Guard

Monitoring of inertial elements and gas in volcanic sites

The VOLCAN GUARD project aims at developing a network of low cost sensors to monitor the variation of some inertial elements and gas concentration in the atmosphere. The purpose of this monitoring network is to provide not only accurate estimates of observed variables (light, temperature, vibration) but also a qualitative indication of how these parameters are changing. The innovative nature of the project consists in the ability of this tool to develop prompts on the phenomenon measured and provide extremely useful information necessary to the generation of a state of alert.

PMF Research realises the web interface and implements the algorithms for the analysis of available data. Interaction with the server is managed through queries exchange with the database implemented within the server and through responses in JSON format.
