The Centre for Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics (COMET) is a NERC Centre of Excellence that uses satellite measurements alongside 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.
Watch Juliet Biggs talk on what drives volcanic unrest? Insights from COMET responses to recent seismic crises around the world.
