Abstract: After PREVIEW FP6 Project’s conclusion, the WP30210 within FP7 GMES SAFER (Services and Applications For Emergency Response) Project has the main objective to refine and consolidate the Earthquake & Volcanoes (E&V) services that were just tested in previous activities and to provide operative services to Users, the Civil Protection Authorities. Here we mainly report objectives and results for the specific tasks related to Eruptive volcanic parameters (WP30211). Four specific products related to the volcanic events which will contribute to the monitoring of the phenomena and mitigation of the eruption effects are expected within the end of the Project. They mainly concern: SAR displacement, high temperature events (HTE), Ash detection, SO2 concentration and flux, and Ash dispersion models. In particular, here we mostly focus on the activity performed in the occasion of FP7 GMES SAFER activation during two major volcanic eruptions occurred in 2010. The first activation was for the Eyjafjallajökull eruption occurred in Iceland between April and May 2010, and the second one was solicited in the occasion of the eruption of Mount Merapi (Indonesia) in October-November 2010. Here we present the results of both remote sensing and modeling activities performed during these two events.
