WP3. Integrated product for supporting volcanic crises

OBJECTIVES:

  • To develop an integrated approach that, exploiting the complementarities between GEO, LEO and ground measurements, improves the ash detection and retrievals and fully characterise the volcanic ash clouds from source to the atmosphere.

The integration is carried out in both clear and cloudy sky conditions.
