KivuSNet represents the first dense broadband seismic network installed in the Kivu Rift region, which is located in the bordering region of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. Here the active volcanoes Nyamulagira (the most active in Africa) and Nyiragongo (host to the largest persistent lava lake on Earth) threaten the city of Goma and neighbouring agglomerations, and destructive earthquakes can also affect the region. The deployment started with the first stations in 2012/2013 and since October 2015, 13 stations are operated with real-time data transmission. The development of KivuSNet has been carried out in the framework of several research projects and is in particular associated with the project REmote Sensing and In Situ detection and Tracking of geohazards (RESIST), funded by the Belgian Science Policy and the National Research Fund of Luxembourg.
