VOLUME

The University of Colima was one of the participants in a European project called VOLUME (Volcanoes: Understanding Subsurface Mass Movement).

The project has participants from France , Italy , Spain , New Zealand , and was recently extended to include Costa Rica , Peru and Mexico. The project finished in March 2009.


CODEX

A project was carried out at Colima between Feb. 2006 and Feb. 2008 which included the installation of a network of seismometers around the volcano. The PI was Mike West of the University of Alaska. One seismometer was installed on the Playon so produced useful data for our studies of the relationship between certain characteristics of the seismicity and the volcanic activity.

GLOBVOLCANO

Satellite Monitoring in Support to Early Warning of Volcanic Risk

Volcán de Colima is one of the volcanoes participating in the project along with volcanoes such as Etna, Piton de la Fournaise in Reunion, Soufriere Hills in Montserrat and Arenal, Costa Rica. Initial results have included InSAR images of the volcano to show large scale deformation.

NOVAC

Network for Observation of Volcanic and Atmospheric Change

This is a 4-year scientific project funded by European Union. It started on 1 October 2005. The network encompasses observatories of 15 volcanoes from five continents, including some of the most active and strongest degassing volcanoes in the world. An installation of 2 fixed stations with UV spectrometers for measuring the SO2 flux was carried out.
