Recovery Act Funds Volcano Monitoring

Posted in Agency News by on May 25, 2011

USGS LogoThe U.S. Geological Survey has received $15.2 million in Recovery Act funding to modernize the monitoring networks and warning systems at five different volcano observatories in Alaska, Washington, Hawaii, California, and Yellowstone National Park.  These funds will be used to replace aging analog seismic instruments with digital instruments that record a broader range of data. Improvements will also be made to the transmission systems that send data from volcanoes to the observatories for analysis.

To learn more about how Recovery funds are helping improve volcano monitoring visit the Department of the Interior’s website.
