RiftVolc is using seismic instrumentation from SEIS-UK.
In rift settings, particularly in the East African Rift, volcanic processes have not been well studied and as a result the associated hazards are highly underestimated. The University of Southampton leads the seismology part of this project.
RiftVolc is using instruments from the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies
MT is a passive geophysical deep-sounding technique that uses the natural electromagnetic (EM) field to image the subsurface with models of electrical resistivity. Resistivity is a parameter that is very much dependent on the water and melt content in the rocks.
