NASA Space Apps Challenge 2016 in Napoli

  Naples is again among the 158 cities of the world in which the fifth International Space Apps Challenge, the big event sponsored by NASA, which will take place on April 23 and 24 at the Faculty of Engineering in Via Nuova Agnano 11. Thanks to the organization supported by IREA, Department…
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…
During the "1st World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine and Food & Environmental Technologies", which was held in in Portoroz (Slovenia) from 5 to 10 September 2015, Dr. Stefania Romeo, a research fellow at IREA in Naples, received the second prize in the category Medicine…
An earthquake of magnitude 8.3 struck the central region of Chile, 46 km west of the city of Illapel, at 22:54:33 (UTC) on September 16, 2015. The area is considered one of the regions at highest seismic risk in the world. The seismic activity in the region is caused by…
A new technique can calculate, through Satellites and GPS data, how the deep magma goes up inside the ground of Campi Flegrei, creating even millimeter deformations of the Earth's surface. A mechanism probably common to other calderas (Yellowstone in the US and Rabaul in Papua New Guinea). The study, published…
Researchers at the Institute for Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment (IREA) have obtained a drastic improvement in mapping surface deformations thanks to data acquired by the year-old European satellite Sentinel-1A. The result, which opens new perspectives for earthquake and volcano monitoring, has been recently reported on the European Space Agency website.…

Nepal: the Earth shakes again

A new earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck the Nepal area on 12 May 2015 and it is the one that, among all the aftershocks, released the biggest energy after the main event of the last April 25th.  Researchers at the Institute for the Electromagnetic Sensing of the Environment of the…
The radar acquisitions of the new generation satellite Sentinel-1A of the European Program Copernicus allowed us to analyze the ongoing seismic phenomena and the permanent effects of the ground movements caused by the violent earthquake of magnitude 7.8 that struck Nepal on April 25, 2015. The study has been conducted…
