On behalf of the 54 students, faculty and staff that have worked in volcano remote sensing at UAF/GI over the last 25 years as part of AVO, Peter and I would like to thank all of you and the USGS for your support, guidance and funding during that time. However, due to changing funding priorities as a result of budget cuts within the USGS, there will no longer be public support for volcano remote sensing at UAF/GI as part of the Alaska Volcano Observatory.
As a result, at the end of the cooperative agreement and public funding that supported remote sensing (May 17th), we have password protected the access to all of the volcano remote sensing webtools (at avo.images.alaska.edu/tools/) and the Puff volcanic ash tracking model (at puff.images.alaska.edu).
The tools will be accessible to customers and data providers in the near future. UAF is currently working on finding a way to provide these tools. See the V-ADAPT website and storefront for more information:
Password protected site for the functioning tools.
