Variations in the vertical component of g measured at the surface of the Earth provide information on sub-surface structures based on density contrasts between buried features. In the case of volcanoes, these features may be magma feeder pipes and pockets of gas or minerals. Monitoring these variations through time provide evidence of the rate of change or movement within these features. This talk provides examples of how measurements of gravity can be used to monitor and predict volcanic activity.
