Further to the GSNL general objectives, the Nicaragua volcano Supersite has the following specific objectives:
To obtain satellite data that serve as a tool for strengthening volcanic monitoring and surveillance in Nicaragua, as well as basis for scientific studies for comprehensive disaster risk management, and thus to provide a timely response to the Nicaraguan population living in the vicinity of active volcanic structures and other areas affected by natural hazards.
Director General of Geology and Geophysics, Instituto Nicaragüense de Estudios Territoriales-INETER, Nicaragua
