Our research combines techniques such as Synthetic Aperture Radar Interferometry (InSAR) with ground-based observations and geophysical models to study earthquakes and volcanoes, and help understand the hazards they pose.

Since April 2014, we have been working in partnership with the British Geological Survey (BGS) to deliver cutting-edge research on earthquakes and volcanoes as well as hazard monitoring services. We also work closely with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) and European Space Agency (ESA), as well as many other national and international partners.
