Stromboli is probably the best known volcano in the world for its spectacular basaltic explosions occurring every 10 minutes. With the events of summer 2019, Stromboli has become an even greater focus for hazard and sisk assessment studies, with a real need for implementation of workable mitigation measures.
The school is aimed at introducing the modern spectrum of field measurements and data acquisition necessary to study and monitor the dynamics of an active volcano.
Students will be introduced to the state of the art of geophysical and geochemical instrumentations, tephra sampling, data acquisition and processing. Special attention will be given to the use of the monitoring tools to define not only eruptive dynamics but also Alert levels and Early-Warning procedure for Civil Protection use.
