On going related projects to SACS

SACS is continued as a project on its own after PROMOTE and TEMIS (2009-2014).
Financier: European Space Agency (ESA)
SACS Home Page
Activities of SACS are closely related to the VAST project (2011-2015).

The project VAST (Volcanic Ash Strategic-initiative Team) aims to demonstrate the suitability of Earth Observation (EO) data for the monitoring and the forecasting of the volcanic plume of ash, and to improve on the existing monitoring and forecasting services for ash transport and its interaction with aviation.
Financier: European Space Agency (ESA)

SACS activies are linked to the SMASH project (2012-2014).

SMASH (Study on an end-to-end system for volcanic ash plume monitoring and prediction) is funded by the ESA General Studies Programme and has main objectives to develop and validate new algorithms that implement polar orbiting satellite remote sensing data for volcanic source term characterisation, and for the quantitative retrieval of volcanic ash and SO2 plumes. Moreover, the project will define an optimal end-to-end system for volcanic ash monitoring and prediction for Europe, based on the existing remote sensing infrastructure.
Financier: European Space Agency (ESA)

SACS activies are linked to the EVOSS project (2010-2013).

The overall goal of EVOSS is to develop and demonstrate a pre-operational portfolio of GMES-Copernicus Downstream Services, based on Earth Observation data and products, to monitor volcanic hazards at a global scale.
Financier: European Commission (EC)

Past related projects to SACS

SACS has become operational as one of the Services of Stage II of the PROMOTE project (2006-2009).
Financier: European Space Agency (ESA)

Parts of SACS were initiated under the TEMIS project (2002-2009).

Activities of SACS are closely related to the SAVAA project (2008-2012).

SAVAA will set up a demonstration system that will be able to ingest satellite data and meteorological wind fields, compute the injection height profile of volcanic emissions to produce a range of analysis fields of volcanic cloud.
Financier: European Space Agency (ESA)

Part of the SO2 data from SACS and dedicated maps are delivered to the GlobVolcano project (2007-2010)

GlobVolcano Project aims at demonstrating EO based integrated services to support the Volcanological Observatories and other mandate users in their monitoring activities. EO based information services will be related to the responsibility areas of user organisations and particular emphasis will be addressed to prevention and early warning.

Part of the SO2 data from SACS is going to used for validation tasks within the NOVAC project (2005-2010).

The main objective of NOVAC is to establish a network for measurements of the emissions of gases -- in particular SO2 and BrO -- and aerosols by volcanoes, and to use the data from this network for risk assessment and volcanological research, both locally and on a regional and global scale.

Part of the SO2 data from SACS is used for validation tasks in the AMFIC project (2007-2009).

AMFIC addresses atmospheric environmental monitoring over China. The aim is to develop an integrated information system for monitoring and forecasting tropospheric pollutants over China, using satellite and in situ air quality measurements and modelling.
