Seismic and Volcanic Risk Evaluation by Large Area Geo-Monitoring optical Fibre Sensor Networks: The SIMONA Project

As demonstrated by many lectures, seismic and volcanic phenomena are strongly related to ground deformation and gaseous emissions. Thus to mitigate environmental risks, a continuous monitoring of ground strain and of the changes in the composition of gaseous emissions can be a very useful tool. The SIMONA (Environmental Integrated Monitoring System) Project aims at fixing, realizing and experimenting an innovative regional monitoring system, based on innovative optoelectronic devices, which is able to exceed the existing limits in order to increase sensibly the interpretation of geo-physical phenomena and the long term mitigation of seismic and volcanic hazards.
