DECADE - Implementation of MultiGAS Instruments in the DECADE Project Project uri icon

DCO ID 11121/2774-1977-2373-4052-CC


  • This project seeks to instrument 25-30 volcanoes worldwide (4 volcanoes in 2014) with permanent MultiGAS devices, to monitor quantitatively volcanic CO2 fluxes by measuring the SO2 emission rates using ground-based DOAS combined with CO2/SO2 MultiGAS measurements in the plumes. By March 2014, the installation of the first two MultiGAS instruments at Turrialba (Costa Rica) and Masaya (Nicaragua) volcanoes was successfully completed. Both instruments are working regularly with telemetry to local observatories (OVSICORI and INETER) and data transfer in Europe via ftp server.
