myVolcano is a crowd-sourcing app that enables you to share your photographs and descriptions of volcanic hazards, as well as collecting samples and measurements of volcanic ash fall, helping scientists to gather vital new information about volcanic eruptions.
myVolcano has been made possible through collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program.
Discover and learn about the volcanoes of the world using the latest data from the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program. View high-resolution aerial imagery to get a new perspective on worldwide volcanoes.
Contribute to our active community and directly interact with BGS scientists. Keep up to date as new observations are recorded and made available on the myVolcano world map.
Using your device, capture a range of information about the observed volcanic hazards at your location. You can include photographs, descriptions and even make accurate measurements through our guided submission form.
Access myVolcano's crowdsourced submissions from the web and learn more about where ash observations have been made. You can also browse or download myVolcano's crowdsourced submissions.
