  • Processing Sentinel-2 data in R using sen2r: the paper published by "Computers & Geosciences"
    Processing Sentinel-2 data in R using sen2r: the paper published by "Computers & Geosciences" sen2r is an R package developed by the Institute of Remote Sensing of Environment (IREA) of the Italian National Research Council, with the aim to simplify and speed up several steps commonly needed to process Sentinel-2 data. Recently, an important recognition to the worth and usefulness of this tool came from the ISI journal Computers & Geosciences, publishing the scientific paper “sen2r”: An R toolbox for automatically downloading and preprocessing Sentinel-2 satellite data. Up to the 14th of May 2020,…

  • Cause-effect relationships between magma and earthquakes during the Etna lateral eruption of December 2018 revealed
    Cause-effect relationships between magma and earthquakes during the Etna lateral eruption of December 2018 revealed The rise of deep magma could be the cause of the seismic swarm that accompanied the 24-27 December 2018 lateral eruption of Mount Etna; this crisis culminated on 26 December with a strong earthquake (ML 4.8) which provoked significant damage in the southeastern region of the volcano. The relationships between magma intrusion and earthquakes are described in a study conducted by Cnr and Ingv, in collaboration with Dpc, published on the international review Geophysical Research Letters. What produced the recent…
