Geochemical Program

Carrying out periodic scientific observation campaigns (recording in discrete mode) to strengthen seismic-volcanic surveillance of the volcanic systems of the Island of Fogo (island and volcano Pico do Fogo) and of the island of Brava on a monthly basis (depending on the local staff) for Pico do Fogo and biannual in the case of the islands of Fogo and Brava. These campaigns involve carrying out hundreds of measurement points, gas sampling, subsequent chemical and isotopic analysis in the laboratory, and data processing, as well as the generation of reports and results.

Below are the areas of study of the geochemical program in discrete mode in Cape Verde:
