Tracking Volcanoes

Jay Wellik, the first Michigan Technological University student to conduct research in Indonesia, created software that reads volcanic activity while studying in Java. Helping the U.S. Geological Survey and Indonesia’s Center for Volcanology and Geologic Hazard Mitigation, Wellik has installed two instruments near Raung to collect seismic data and calculate the energy released from volcanic earthquakes.
