CEO Dr. Maximilian Weiß would have preferred to be on site long ago. After seeing the first pictures of the active Cumbre Vieja, he had the reflex to react very quickly.
Some of our colleagues from Karlsruhe will fly to the island next week to carry out exact measurements. Supporting the local authorities we will install 10 monitors there. The dust levels will be measured close to the vulcano but also in a school. We will report the particle size distributions of the ash to local scientists. This will help to get more important informations about the activity of the vulcano. Our new gas measuring technologies for NO2, SO2, O3 and CO will be implemented too.
