Volcanic activity at Bárðarbunga monitored with TSX and TDX

Poster presentation at the TSX/TDX Science Meeting in Oct. 2016


The LMU, Section Geology, presents a poster (3.4 MB) at the TerraSAR-X/ TanDEM-X Science Team Meeting at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany (17-20 October 2016).

Risk assessment was made possible by continous monitoring of the fissure eruption with high resolution TerraSAR-X Stripmap data.

By means of TanDEM-X data ice subsidence within the Bárðarbunga caldera was analysed, the volume of the lavafield calculated and a graben, formed due to dyke intrusion, detected.
