Correlation of seismicity and volcanism at Mount Etna, Sicily, Italy.
Summary:
Etna is an active volcano in southern Europe, the continent's highest. From ancient times to the present day, this volcano has been erupting, as it is among the most active ones. The continuous monitoring of the volcano is an obligation of society, as thousands of residents live on the slopes of the volcano. In this work, using the Seisgram program, we analyzed the signals from events of August and September 2014 to characterize the type of signals. The purpose of the work is to understand how a seismic signal affects the eruptions of the Etna system. Taking the appropriate measures, for example adding more seismological stations, GPS and volcanic gas detection systems, the citizens can be notified before an eruption, to reduce the volcanic risk as much as possible. Given that during each eruption of pyroclastic material, the craters of the volcano expand, causing the volcano to change shape, a model that will be able to predict future differences in the image of the volcano and craters is required.
