GNDT 2 campaign

Campaign position on map

Abstract
NEMO-SN1 cabled observatory operated from January 2005 to April 2008 in the central Mediterranean basin, offshore Eastern Sicily island (Italy) at 2036 m w.d.. This area is one of the most seismically active zone of the Mediterranean which has experimented distructive events and tsunamis.

Purpose
Design and development of a seismic monitoring and alarm underwater network in areas highly exposed to seismic risk through a cabled multiparameter observation system - Development of a first node in Eastern Sicily (SN-1).
