Abstract
A variety of new approaches to the global detection and monitoring of geological hazards will be available as a number of new earth-orbiting satellite systems become operational toward the end of the current decade. These involve (a) multi-instrumented low-earth orbital platforms such as the Eos Mission (b) multi-instrumented geostationary research platforms and (c) small single-instrument low-earth orbiters. The capabilities of these platforms combined with greater spectral range and higher spatial and spectral resolutions will provide data appropriate to the detection and monitoring of many transient geological hazard phenomena. Improved worldwide communications and international cooperation will be necessary to take advantage of this emerging operational technology.
