The scope of the service request EMSN-047 was to provide background information, concerning Nyiragongo volcano activity and its impact to the surrounding urban agglomerations and infrastructures. We have collected and present relevant information, including historical information and data, the current situation, etch, including key references.

The specific activation focuses on pre‐disaster situation analysis. More specifically it addresses risk analyses with a focus on volcanic hazard, caused by Nyiragongo activity, and highly accurate DEM to simulate lava flow pathways, which will be used for future eruptions management.
