SFU: EXTREME SCIENCE IN VOLCANOLOGY

Scientists are using extreme science to install a lava monitoring system around a lava lake of Masaya volcano in Nicaragua.

Gas sensors and a temperature probe will be deployed around a bubbling lava lake convecting at almost 100 km/h in hopes of extracting valuable data.  SFU partnered with GEOARC, a non-profit organization specialising in extreme science expeditions, to deploy over 1.1 km of rope directly above the lava lake to enable the lowering of equipment into the crater..... click to read more
