Mission Control needs you! Protect the men, women, and children on the beautiful Island of Montserrat. Form emergency response teams. Plan. Prepare. Live the mission.
Live satellite coverage must be maintained. Can continuous and reliable data be provided?
Is Mt. Pinatubo volcano like Montserrat's? Examine seismic data. Make predictions. Watch out for lahars, pyroclastic flows, and exploding tephra!
An Atlantic Ocean storm cell forms. Is it another Hurricane George? Will 150 mph gusts rake the sleepy town of Plymouth? Maths helps to forecast the path of destruction.
As you walk the crystal white Caribbean beaches, do you feel the tremors? Can peaceful Montserrat survive nature's violence? What is your emergency plan?
Data tells stories. Data helps predict the future. Data, graphs, charts, and rapid information flow. Emergency response experts organise for the big day.
Communicate, coordinate, and meet the challenge. The Internet lifeline links your Emergency Response Teams to Mission Control and a Caribbean island under siege.
Did your Emergency Response Teams succeed? Did the volcano erupt? Did the hurricane hit the island? Are the men, women, and children of Montserrat safe?
e-Mission: Operation Montserrat is based on a real historical event.
The volcano on the normally tranquil island of Montserrat has come to life. As flaming pebbles and lava begin their devastation,
emergency response teams learn a hurricane is approaching. Using real-time hurricane and seismic data, teams of student specialists
assist Mission Control in saving the residents from certain destruction.
