1 Italian Supersites and MEDiterranean SUpersite Volcanoes (MED-SUV) Project

2 Italian active volcanoes and Supersites

3 This complex geodynamic context of the central Mediterranean area reflects in different eruptive behaviors: open conduit (M. Etna) (PoC, G. Puglisi; INGV-CT) closed conduit (Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei) (PoC, S. Borgstrom; INGV-OV) The eruptive behaviors encompass almost the entire spectrum of the threatening volcanic phenomena; These characteristics attract the interest of the volcanologic community; The presence of populated areas foster the development of cutting-edges in-situ monitoring systems and background EO missions for a long time (since the 80s). C. Flegrei/Vesuvius and Mt. Etna can be considered, altogether, a Cluster of Supersites in the centre of the Mediterranean area Italian active volcanoes and Supersites Rationale High Hazard and Risk Earth Observations and Ground-Based data Supersite Initiative

4 MEDiterranean SUpersite Volcanoes MED-SUV An EPOS coordinated proposal (invited to the negotiation) submitted to the call: ENV Long-term monitoring experiment in geologically active regions of Europe prone to natural hazards: the Supersite concept. G. Puglisi INGV (Coordinator)

5 The MED-SUV Project - Objectives The MED-SUV project will exploit the large, remarkable and unique data set on the Cluster of Supersites to gain new insight into the internal dynamics of the volcanoes and provide answers to the following questions. Are the current EO and in-situ observations detailed and accurate enough to capture signals which reflect the internal dynamics and/or eruptive phenomena? How is it possible to improve the quality of these signals? What are the expected effects of magma ascent on the stress/strain field (and vice versa)? How well can we forecast the place and time of an eruption or volcanic unrest? How may we optimize the functioning of the chain from observations to end-users during an eruptive event? How are the project outcomes exportable to other active volcanoes? The overall goal of the project is to apply the rationale of the Supersites GEO initiative to Campi Flegrei/Vesuvius and Mt. Etna to reduce the volcanic risk, by improving the understanding of the underlying geophysical processes, through the integration and sharing of the in-situ and Earth Observation (EO) data sets and the implementation of new instruments and monitoring systems. The main objectives of the project are: 1. Development of the next generation of geo-hazard monitoring/observing systems. 2. Characterization of the volcanic processes through cutting-edge data analysis/modelling 3. Strategies for volcanic disaster preparedness and mitigation 4. Test and validation of the project outcomes 5. Dissemination

6 Questions – Answers and Workplan The MED-SUV would provide answers to the following questions. Are the current EO and in-situ observations detailed and accurate enough to capture signals which reflect the internal dynamics and/or eruptive phenomena? How is it possible to improve the quality of these signals? What are the expected effects of magma ascent on the stress/strain field (and vice versa)? How well can we forecast the place and time of an eruption or volcanic unrest? How may we optimize the functioning of the chain from observations to end-users during an eruptive event? How are the project outcomes exportable to other active volcanoes? Objectives (answers): 1. Development of the next generation of geo-hazard monitoring/observing systems. 2. Characterization of the volcanic processes through cutting-edge data analysis/modeling 3. Strategies for volcanic disaster preparedness and mitigation 4. Test and validation of the project outcomes 5. Dissemination
