GEOlab researchers shaping future of energy, disaster forecasting

Members of Penn State’s Geoinformatics and Earth Observation laboratory (GEOlab)

Never has the world been better positioned to predict and respond to natural disasters. The stream of data at our fingertips is seemingly endless. But the size of this mounting trove of information in itself poses a problem. For example, running flood calculations for a city facing heavy rains using a century of data is highly accurate. But the calculation is useless if it takes days or weeks to compute.

Drones let researchers monitor changes in volcanoes, plan virtual field trip

Drones let researchers monitor changes in volcanoes, plan virtual field trip

Penn State geosciences researchers are investigating an active volcano that could pose a hazard to millions of people in Nicaragua. Masaya volcano is located in an active volcanic and seismic zone and is nearby Managua, Nicaragua's capital. The researchers are using many methods, including drones, to study how the volcano and surrounding earth are changing over time. The drones are able to capture high-quality video footage and travel to places inaccessible to humans.
