52. It is also possible to use fiber optic sensors in combination with fiber optic communication links to monitor stress buildup in critical fault locations and dome buildup of volcanoes. These widely dispersed fiber networks may offer the first real means of gathering information necessary to form prediction models for these natural hazards. 52 are drawn from the Fiber Optic Sensor Workbook, F copyright Eric Udd/Blue Road Research, and are used with permission. indb 32 1.
