GPS - SurfacE Deformations withIn Seconds

The project G-SEIS (GPS - SurfacE Deformations withIn Seconds) has the following main tasks: 

  • the design and development of a new series of multi-parameter stations running unattended and autonomously for long periods,
  • the development and test of new data communication strategies for high-rate and high-volume data,
  • the development of new and automated GPS/GNSS software allowing real-time data analysis and self-detection of events (accuracy: mm to cm).

The developed new strategies will have an extraordinary effect on the GITEWS project. In addition, recent volcano eruptions (e.g. Merapi) again set a scientific focus on the monitoring of volcano domes. Here, the proposed technique and data analysis procedure will also be applicable.
