GNDT 1 - Gravimeter dataset


Instrument: IFSI (INAF) Prototype #1
Investigator: Mariagrazia De Caro (INGV)
Project: GNDT-SN1
Observatory: NEMO-SN1

Citation: De Caro, Mariagrazia. (2002). Gravimeter dataset (IFSI (INAF) Prototype #1 @ 1 Hz) from INGV/NEMO-SN1 seafloor platform during GNDT-SN1 project in Western Ionian Sea site (East Sicily), part of EMSO network.

Abstract: A prototype of gravity meter built at the Istituto di Fisica dello Spazio Interplanetario (IFSI) of the National Institute of Astro-Physics (INAF) was installed on the SN1 deep-sea multidisciplinary observatory, offshore of the Eastern coast of Sicily. The gravity meter provides measurements of variation of the vertical component of the acceleration with respect to an initial reference value.

Purpose: The comparison between seismic signal with the continuous gravimetric measurement can help to characterise different styles of the Etna volcanic activity.

Quality of data: The gravity meter acquires one sample per second in continuous mode. The data show a good signal to noise ratio (S/N).
