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…
As part of the activities that the European Commission plays in monitoring the potential effects of electromagnetic fields on health, IREA participates in the activities of SCENIHR (Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks). The researchers Maria Rosaria Scarfì and Olga Zeni, named "external experts" by the Commission,…
  The fourth International Space Apps Challenge will take place all around the world on April 11 and 12, 2015. This is the largest worldwide Hackathon with thousands of participants in all continents who collaborate and work together over 48-hours to design innovative solutions for the most thrilling challenges that world is…

A new sun photometer on Lake Garda

A photometer of the 'AERONET' network, positioned at the Archaeological site of Grotte di Catullo in Sirmione on Lake Garda, was inaugurated last October 22. The sun photometer Cimel is a tool that helps to measure the values of the optical thickness of the atmosphere and, therefore, it can be…
