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 v-adapt.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.
