Abstract

Recent measurements of ground deformation at an active volcano show great promise for elucidating the processes that lead to volcanic eruptions. A long-term effort to continuously monitor ground deformation over a very wide bandwidth using state-of-the-art geodetic, seismic, and acoustic instruments at Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica is producing high-quality recordings of harmonic tremor and explosive events and offers an exciting opportunity to explore possible lunar periodicities in volcanic eruptivity.
