Western Ionian Sea site
Area: East Sicily
Location: Ocean > Atlantic Ocean > North Atlantic Ocean > Mediterranean Sea > Sicily
This observatory is an important offshore site close to Mount Etna, where the Italian SN-1 multidisciplinary observatory recently completed its first 6 month mission.
The existing cable for NEMO neutrino experiment provides a focus for real-time data transfer and the integration of the seafloor observatory into land-based networks.
