Abstract We examine 150 volcanoes and geothermal areas in the central, southern and austral Andes for thermal anomalies between the years 2000 and 2010 from two different spaceborne sensors: (1) those automatically detected by the MODVOLC algorithm from MODIS; and (2) manually identified hotspots in night-time images from ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer). Based on previous work, we expected to find eight volcanoes displaying thermal anomalies (Ubinas… 
Analysis of thermal anomalies at Copahue Volcano between October 2011 and the December 2012 eruption with MODIS
Abstract Copahue volcano is an active stratovolcano located in the Southwest of the Agrio-Caviahue depression in the Province of Neuquen at the border between Argentina and Chile, and the most recent
The 2011 Hudson volcano eruption (Southern Andes, Chile): Pre-eruptive inflation and hotspots observed with InSAR and thermal imagery
Hudson is one of the most active volcanoes in the Southern Andes—it had one of the largest eruptions of the 20th century in 1991 (VEI = 5) and smaller eruptions in 1971 (VEI = 3), maybe 1973, and
Volcanic Anomalies Monitoring System (VOLCANOMS), a Low-Cost Volcanic Monitoring System Based on Landsat Images
The thermal radiance shows a concordance with the eruptive activity in all cases, whereas a correlation is observed between thermal and seismic data both, in Villarrica and Lascar volcanoes, especially in the case of long-period seismicity.
Satellite observations of fumarole activity at Aluto volcano, Ethiopia: Implications for geothermal monitoring and volcanic hazard
Abstract Fumaroles are the surface manifestation of hydrothermal circulation and can be influenced by magmatic, hydrothermal, hydrological and tectonic processes. This study investigates the temporal
Thermal evolution of the Crater Lake of Copahue Volcano with ASTER during the last quiescence period between 2000 and 2012 eruptions
Abstract Active Crater Lakes are the surface expression of volcanic activity at the top of complex magmatic-hydrothermal systems. The Volcanic and Hydrothermal System Copahue is one of the most
Remotely Sensed Deformation and Thermal Anomalies at Mount Pagan, Mariana Islands
Mt Pagan is an active volcano in the Mariana Island Arc, having produced a large eruption (>0.1 km3) in 1981, and recent smaller eruptions (>0.001 km3) in2011 and 2012. In this study we examine
The AVTOD (ASTER Volcanic Thermal Output Database) Latin America archive
Abstract Thermal spaceborne remote sensing has been used to study, monitor, and forecast volcanic activity for decades. But these data have not been used systematically at high spatial resolution to
Thermal Remote Sensing for Global Volcano Monitoring: Experiences From the MIROVA System
Volcanic activity is always accompanied by the transfer of heat from the Earth’s crust to the atmosphere. This heat can be measured from space and its measurement is a very useful tool for detecting
Reconnaissance earthquake studies at nine volcanic areas of the central Andes with coincident satellite thermal and InSAR observations
Abstract We record non-eruptive background seismicity at eight potentially active volcanoes and one geothermal area in Chile and Bolivia for the first time in order to set a baseline for future
The 2008 “silent” eruption of Nevados de Chillán (Chile) detected from space: Effusive rates and trends from the MIROVA system
On January 2008, a “silent” eruption took place on the northeast flank of Nevados de Chillan volcanic complex (Chile). The eruption had an effusive character and persisted for several months during


Infrared image analysis of volcanic thermal features: Láscar Volcano, Chile, 1984–1992
Fifteen Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) images of Lascar volcano (Chile), recorded between December 1984 and April 1992, document the evolution of a lava dome within the summit crater. Four of the
Thermal monitoring of Lascar Volcano, Chile, using infrared data from the along-track scanning radiometer: a 1992–1995 time series
Abstract Lascar Volcano (22°22'S, 67°44'W) is the most active volcano of the central Andes of northern Chile. Activity since 1984 has been characterised by periods of lava dome growth and decay
Lava flow cooling estimated from Landsat Thematic Mapper infrared data: The Lonquimay Eruption (Chile, 1989)
Surface temperatures of a 1989 andesite lava flow at Volcan Lonquimay, Chile, derived from an analysis of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) infrared data, show a progressive cooling of crusted lava from
ASTER observations of thermal anomalies preceding the April 2003 eruption of Chikurachki volcano, Kurile Islands, Russia
Abstract Chikurachki volcano (Northern Kurile Islands Chain, Paramushir Island 50° 20′N, 155° 27′E; elevation 1816 m, stratovolcano) has been in a state of unrest for over twenty years. Its most
