Data acquisition for volcano monitoring



In the past decade, systems and techniques for volcano monitoring activities have improved rapidly. The scientific community focused on the development of new methods and techniques, while the electronic systems for experimental activity and monitoring networks were developed mainly by commercial companies.

However, these commercial systems often do not fit simultaneously all the needs of geophysical research. A new project, led by the Italian Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) ‘Osservatorio Vesuviano’ (OV) in Naples is trying to fill this niche with the development of data acquisition systems for multiparametric volcanic monitoring.
