La Palma Sentinel-2 11/10/2021 header image

Monitoring volcano ash plumes on La Palma with different satellites

On 19 September 2021, the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain) started to erupt for the first time since 1971. Together with the outflowing lava, the crater ejected large ash plumes containing several gases, among which sulfur dioxide (SO2). Discover how three satellite instrument allow us to map and monitor the volcano ash plumes and SO2 transport.

STEM lesmodule remote sensing

Learn more about Earth observation through new STEM teaching module

Climate change, sustainability, ecology,… These are all extremely important topics. But how can we make our society more sustainable to keep our planet a healthy and livable environment? To take the right actions, we first need to know the Earth's status. Through a brand new STEM teaching module (available in Dutch), students can easily identify the use and importance of remote sensing to monitor our Earth and create a more sustainable environment for everyone.
