Deep carbon Degassing (DECADE)
Research Project , 2015 – 2016

The DECADE (Deep Earth Carbon Degassing) project is an international initiative aiming at providing an improved quantitative budget for global volcanic carbon emissions, by establishing a monitoring network on some of the most actively degassing volcanoes worldwide and complementing it with regional-scale measurements of other volcano-tectonic areas. The gas monitoring network will allow real-time quantification of carbon emissions, as well as other molecules, laying the foundation for long-term geochemical research on active volcanoes at a global basis.
