Here are the last alarm pictures from the field station. This page is
updated whenever a new alarm picture comes from the station. Most of these
pictures are false alarms, which means that a solution is found at once.
Those pictures that need more analysis before a solution might be found
are defined as interesting alarm pictures. This year's interesting alarm
pictures are on page Pictures 2001. Comments about this year's interesting alarm
pictures are on this page.
The computer does not analyze the whole picture from the camera.
