Social Media Helping Keep An Eye on Costa Rica’s Turrialba Volcano

Costa Rica News – Social networks help experts monitor the Turrialba Volcano.

People share their experience, photos and videos through Facebook and Twitter with the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (Ovsicori).

Sometimes cameras don’t have visibility so it’s important for those closest to report what they are seeing in the event of an eruption.

Daily photographs sent by neighbors help monitor the volcano.

Additionally, this is a way for the scientists to interact with the public and educate them about volcanology. For instance, the word “tremor” is now widely used whereas before social media interactions it was not well known.

Some of the information collected from users includes how far the ash and smell of sulfur traveled.

Some info given includes scientific education that uses the platforms to demystify questions about volcanoes.
