Contribution of the Demeter Satellite in the natural hazards prediction and prevention
Convener: Sid-Ali Ouadfeul  | Co-Convener: Leila Aliouane 

The DEMETER (Detection of Electro-Magnetic Emissions Transmitted from Earthquake Regions) is a French satellite launched in 2004 and terminated in 2011 to study the behavior of the ionosphere before and after natural hazards such as volcanic activity and earthquake. The objectif of the DEMETER mission is:
-Study the ionospheric perturbations related to seismic activity.
-Study the ionospheric perturbations related to human activity.
-Study the effect of pre and post seismic activity in the ionosphere.
-Contribute to the understanding of the mechanism of generation of ionospheric disturbances.
-Provide global information about the electromagnetic environment of the earth at Demeter altitude.
The goal of the session is to show the contribution of the DEMETER satellite in the natural hazards prediction and prevention, oral and poster presentations related to the topic are welcome.
