Since the beginning of this year, we have been running a series of monthly webinars on volcano monitoring, using data provided by different Sentinel missions. A new webinar is closing the loop!
This month, we will focus on Mount Etna, a stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, one of the three active volcanoes in Italy and one of the tallest active in Europe, covering an area of 1,190 km2, with a basal circumference of 140 km, and reaching a current height of 3,326 m. Etna’s eruptions are of multiple patterns: they can be either flank or occur at the summit, which has five distinct craters. There has been an increase of eruptive events recorded in the last few years and the most recent summit eruptions have started in February 2021.
During this webinar, we will monitor this event, focusing on the period from February to May 2021. We will access the RUS environment to download, visualize and process the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites and we will show you how to use Sentinel-2 data to trace the lava flow.
You can replay this webinar through our RUS Copernicus Training channel available on Youtube.
You can also retrieve the corresponding training support in the Train with RUS section of the RUS portal.
