Vancouver, December 20, 2020 — Nupoint Systems has provided the Centre for Natural Hazards Research (www.sfu.ca/cnhr) with a Remote Viewer™—Fixed Sight Camera System to monitor the activity of Mount Meager. Located at the unstable flank of Plinth Peak on the Mount Meager Volcanic Complex near Pemberton, British Columbia, Nupoint’s Systems is supporting Dr. Glyn Williams-Jones and his team at Simon Fraser University in their efforts to monitor Canada’s only active volcano.
A glacier sits on top of Mount Meager, which is part of British Columbia’s coastal mountain range, and it is the last volcano to explode on Canadian soil. Mount Meager is located northwest of Whistler, British Columbia and last erupted just over 2,400 years ago.
The Nupoint camera system was installed in the summer of 2020 and is now sending regular photos of the volcano’s activity to the scientists, who will use this data to predict the possibility of future activity
