Pasquale Imperatore and Romeo Bernini, researchers at the Institute for Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment (IREA), are among the editors of the Special Issue "In Situ and Remote Sensors toward Integrated Earth Sensing” of Journal of Sensors. The special issue is dedicated to recent advances, developments and applications in the…
During the 2017 summer season, the Vesuvius National Park was struck by a devastating fire event which caused massive damage to the forest heritage on all flanks of the volcano. Large quantities of ashes resulting from the burning of tens of hectares of Mediterranean scrubs have been dispersed in the…
During the World Congress of the International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA) held from June 27 to 30 in Otsu, Gloria Bordogna, Senior Researcher at IREA, was awarded the IFSA Fellow grade. The title, reserved reserved for distinguished contributors whose works have had a significant impact on fuzzy logic theory and…
Immediately after the Ischia earthquake of 21 August 2017, researchers at CNR-IREA measured the Earth surface displacements thanks to the data acquired by the European Sentinel-1 and Italian COSMO-SkyMed constellations of satellites. A subsidence up to 4 centimetres was measured close to Casamicciola Terme.  During the post-event phase, the Department…

Conference Europt(r)ode XIV

IREA, together with the Institute of Applied Physics at Carrara (IFAC-CNR) and the Italian Society of Optics and Photonics (SIOF), is organizing in Naples the XIV edition of Europt(r)ode, one of the most important Conferences worldwide in the field of optical sensors for chemical and biological applications. Submission of contributions…
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…
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…
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…
The National Directory of Territorial Data has reported EDI software as a new tool for all Public Administrations committed to enhancing their territorial data heritage. EDI, developed by IREA-CNR under the RITMARE project, responds in particular to the challenges of quality and coherence of geographic information by giving a variety…
