The GlobVolcano project is part of the ESA DUE programme. The project aims at demonstrating EO-based services to support the Volcanological Observatories and other mandate users (e.g. Civil Protection authorities, scientific communities of volcanoes) in their monitoring activities. During the project a worldwide selection of user organizations will cooperate with the GlobVolcano team in order to harmonize user's requirements and to evaluate the EO-based services . The "Osservatorio Vesuviano" of Naples (INGV-Italy) coordinates the communications between the project and the User Community. IPGP of Paris is responsible for the scientific coordination and the validation activities. The project activities are split in two phases. During the first phase (completed in June 2008) the service infrastructure and interface to the users have been developed. Prototype EO-based information products have been generated and validated. Service provision on pre-operational basis will take place during the second phase.
