Volcano Deformation Database

The Volcano Deformation website is built using WordPress, and provides a bespoke set of forms and templates to record and display information about observations of deformation at volcanoes around the world.

All of the volcanoes in the index have an entry containing information about past deformation events measured using satellite radar (InSAR) or ground based methods, such as GPS, levelling or tilt.

Once the new InSAR satellite, Sentinel-1 (launched April 2014), enters its operational phase the site will also provide images constructed from the most recent Sentinel data for each volcano. These images will be processed on a local server, and the resulting images automatically copied across to the WordPress server where they are picked up and displayed on the site via an automatically generated page with no further editing required.
