Etna experimentation

In july 2016, Kylia team, Ign, and INGV installed 5 geocubes On the Etna Volcano in order to measure the small moves that can be a indicator of a next eruption. If the experiment becomes successful Geocube will find a new application: Volcano monitoring . With unique feature of geocubes, like low power consumption, cost effectiveness, 365/7/24 radio based real time monitoring, installation easiness.  You can observe real time monitoring by clicking here.

in September 2016 a storm destroyed the coordinator and the the real time monitoring. We left the sensors on site for postprocessing. Beginning of 2017 a eruption occurred, and the geocubes stopped a lava flow (the black mass in the photo below), because it is a too much impressive device:)). Well, we decided to call back the geocubes for analysis.
