Seismic data from the Montserrat eruption at BGS

By R. Luckett


The Soufriere Hills Volcano on Montserrat in the West Indies began to erupt in July 1995. By the end of the year staff from the British Geological Survey (BGS) were involved in monitoring the eruption and the BGS either jointly or singly managed the Montserrat Volcano Observatory between September 1996 and April 2008. In this time a wealth of seismic data was collected by the observatory corresponding to many types of volcanic activity. This data has been archived at the BGS and this report aims to explain how to access it and to put the data in the context of the various seismic monitoring networks that recorded it
