COMET is aiming to significantly improve the understanding of tectonic and volcanic processes and the hazard they present. We have three overarching aims for 2014-2019:
- to measure tectonic strain with unprecedented resolution for the entire planet;
- to measure deformation and gas release at every active volcano; and
- to combine these data sets with ground-based observations to build new models of these hazardous processes that can be used to mitigate risk.
