Abstract

The Institute of Physical Geodesy (IPGD) is one of the partners in the project Exupery which will develop the Volcano Fast Response System for hazard mitigation. The project is funded in the framework of the German research programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN under research theme 'Early Warning Systems in Earth Management'. Here we describe IPGD's concept for a real-time GPS network processing scheme for two principal tasks: firstly to provide the georeference for various sensor types and secondly for monitoring geometric deformations of the volcano surface at discrete points. The GPS network will consist of a mixture of single and dual frequency receivers connected by WLAN to a server running a dedicated real-time software. Beside the concept we present first results obtained from low-cost single frequency GPS sensors which will form the majority of the network sites, especially within the high risk area.
