The first version of the database includes the time series of thermal flux (Volcanic Radiative Power; VRP in Watt) radiated into the atmosphere from 111 volcanoes around the world (Fig. 1) in the period from March 1, 2000 and December 31, 2019. The dataset was elaborated from nighttime data acquired by the MODIS sensor and elaborated through the MIROVA algorithm.The database is stored and is entirely downloadable from the dedicated repository:

MIROVA Database v.1.0

For information, features and usage of the database, please refer to the companion publication:

Fig. 1. Volcanoes included in the MIROVA Database v. 1.0 subdivided by composition groups (Acid: more than 65 wt% SiO2; Basic: less than 55 wt% SiO2; Intermediate: 55 to 65 wt% SiO2; Other: Carbonatite). The Pie chart illustrates the proportion of each group within the dataset. (modified from Coppola et al., 2023);
