Experience in Monitoring and Early Warning Systems:

  • OSOP stays on top of it’s clients needs by maintaining a full-scale observatory. Panama has contracted OSOP to monitor Baru Volcano, a task OSOP has fulfilled for almost a decade. OSOP has long maintained the most advanced volcano monitoring network in Central and South America at Baru Volcano. Data are transmitted digitally via radio and satellite to OSOP’s base station where technicians maintain a full-scale and fully-operational data acquisition and processing center. Data are processed in house using Earlybird, Earthworm, Seisan, SeisComP and other proprietary software.
  • Monitoring and early warning of flash floods, lahars and inundations at Baru Volcano.
