FLY-Lion3 submarine cable to help IPGP monitor seismic activity

Thursday 16 January 2020 | 14:59 CET | News
Orange and members of the FLY-Lion3 consortium (Lower Indian Ocean Network), the Societe Reunionnaise du Radiotelephone and Comores Cables signed an agreement with the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP) to provide the IPGP's Mayotte volcano and earthquake monitoring network with a pair of optical fibres.

The scientists involved hope to get a better understanding of major geological structures linked to existing seismo-volcanic activity.
