The article of the project to enhance Ecuador's volcano-monitoring capability was introduced as a lead stroy of the Eos.

The EosBlank, the journal of the American Geophysical Union (AGU)Blank introduced the technical cooperation project to enhance Ecuador's volcano-monitoring capability as the lead story.

In March 2004, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)Blank, an agency fostering sustainable development in developing countries, in partnership with Ecuador's Instituto Geofisico, Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IG-EPN)Blank began a technical cooperation project to enhance Ecuador's volcano-monitoring capability, and NIED is a partner in this project. The EosBlank, the journal of the American Geophysical Union (AGU)Blank, June 5, 2007, introduced this project as a lead story. The article discussed aspects of the project from the beginning of the the project up to the present. For instance, in July and August last year when the Tungurahua eruption occurred, the new seismometer systems installed as a part of the project detected seismic and infrasonic signals associated with the heightened eruption activity. These date collected from the systems was used to warn, and subsequently help evacuate three to four thousand people from high risk areas, saving many lives.
