  • Satellite radars and GPS detect slow fault movements
    Satellite radars and GPS detect slow fault movements Revealed, for the first time in Italy, in the Pollino area, the presence of slow fault movements during a sequence of low magnitude earthquakes, which help to explain why in this area, compared to the rest of the Apennines, the earthquakes of higher magnitude are less frequent. The study was published in "Scientific Reports".      During the long seismic sequence which affected the Pollino area (Italy) from 2010 to 2014, there were not only earthquakes but also a slow…

  • INSPIRE, from theory to practice: GET-IT software contributes to spatial data interoperability in Europe
    INSPIRE, from theory to practice: GET-IT software contributes to spatial data interoperability in Europe The GET-IT software was recently recognized a useful tool to make the INSPIRE Directive operational. GET-IT is now reviewed and registered in the “INSPIRE in Practice” catalogue. “INSPIRE in Practice” is the official INSPIRE platform dedicated to every user engaged in geographic information domain who would adopt tools contributing to spatial data interoperability among different European countries. “INSPIRE in Practice” is particularly devoted to give visibility to practices and means able to implement the INSPIRE Directive, resulting in an online…

  • The Italy 18 January 2017 earthquakes captured by the Sentinel-1 and ALOS-2 satellite radar data
    The Italy 18 January 2017 earthquakes captured by the Sentinel-1 and ALOS-2 satellite radar data Despite the copious snow cover and the adverse weather conditions, the Sentinel-1 and ALOS-2 satellites allowed a team of IREA-CNR scientists to retrieve the Earth’s surface deformation induced by the recent seismic sequence in central Italy, whose main shock reached a magnitude of Mw 5.5 on 18 January 2017. Thanks to the joint processing of two radar images acquired across the main event by the Sentinel-1 satellite constellation of the European Copernicus program, it was possible to generate the so-called co-seismic Interferogram (see…
