Santiago Arellano

Researcher, Department of Space, Earth and Environment, Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing

Santiago Arellano study the physics of the atmosphere and volcanic eruptions using spectroscopic remote sensing. This includes developing instruments, using them in the field, and analyzing data to reveal the emission of different molecules to air and understand how this relates to underlying geophysical processes. In his work he collaborates with multidisciplinary research groups and their work helps people to take informed decisions about volcanic or other environmental risks. Santiago is in charge of instrumentation and data analysis for the global NOVAC collaboration and teaches courses on experimental physics. He co-leads the IAVCEI Commission on the Chemistry of Volcanic Gases.
