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…

Gianfranco Fornaro elevated to IEEE Fellow

Gianfranco Fornaro, Senior Researcher at IREA, has been elevated to Fellow by IEEE for his for contributions to SAR processing in differential interferometry and tomography. The Fellow grade will be effective by 1 January 2017. IEEE, “the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers”, is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated…
Riccardo Lanari, director of IREA, has been announced as the recipient of the 2017 Christiaan Huygens Medal, one of the prizes that the European Geosciences Union (EGU) awards each year to eminent scientists for their outstanding research contribution to the Earth, planetary and space sciences. In particular, the Christiaan Huygens…
The study of ground deformation and seismic sources, now focused on the 30 October 2016 earthquake, is enriched with new important results obtained from the processing of radar images collected from the Sentinel-1 constellation along ascending and descending orbits    Thanks to the new radar images, acquired on 1 November 2016 from…

In the fascinating setting of Pompeii archaeological area, the school "Geophysics and Remote Sensing for Archaeology" will be held from 9 to 13 May 2016. The course is organised by two Institutes of the National Research Council of Italy, i.e. CNR-IBAM and CNR-IREA, and Soprintendenza Speciale Beni Archeologici Pompei, Ercolano…
Sentinel-1 is the first satellite of the Copernicus program and is equipped with a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensor that is able to provide day-night acquisitions nearly over the whole World. The Sentinel-1 operational mode on land is the so-called Interferometric Wide Swath (IWS), which guarantees the Earth’s global coverage…
In the frame of the next AGU 2015 Fall meeting IREA-CNR organized a training event on “Training on the SBAS-DInSAR web tool for Earth surface deformation analysis through the ESA Geohazard Exploitation Platform”. The event originates in the context of space-borne geodetic techniques, and will focus on Differential Synthetic Aperture…
