A possible new EPOS-N Jan Mayen volcano observatory should comprise:

  • Earthquake monitoring: New 3-component broadband sensors, and possibly strong-motion sensors (accelerometers) also.
  • Ground deformation monitoring using geodetic GNSS and satellite based InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar).
  • Corner reflectors for InSAR. (Removed)
  • Gas monitoring instrumentation, in particular sulphur dioxide SO2
  • Multispectral cameras.
