The construction of volcanoes, i.e. the intrusive and eruptive growth, can be intermittently interrupted by destructive events. Dome building volcanoes, in specific, grow by magma extrusion and are partially destroyed again, posing a significant hazard in form of pyroclastic flows and other processes.

The VolCapse project is an interdisciplinary project, including geophysics, geodesy, and structural geology, and based on remote sensing of ground displacements, computer vision techniques applied to camera observations, integration of different data streams, signal decomposition using mathematical tools, and inversion and numerical modelling.
