RTOSS mooring being deployed off Grenada, May 2007.

Yellow Alert

On May 6, 2007, WHOI researchers and technicians deployed the Real Time Offshore Seismic Station (RTOSS) off the coast of Grenada. RTOSS is part of a project to develop new mooring technology for earthquake monitoring, and it includes an ocean-bottom seismometer deployed directly on top of the volcano to collect real-time data from the hazardous Kick‘em Jenny volcano. The new system should significantly improve the ability of natural hazard managers to notify and protect the island’s residents from volcanic eruptions and tsunamis.
