Special Issue "Remote Sensing for Volcano Systems Monitoring"
A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292). This special issue belongs to the section "Remote Sensing in Geology, Geomorphology and Hydrology".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: In the context of Earth Observation, research has focused on the structure of the Earth system and is specifically addressed to the quantitative analysis of the geodynamic processes that have characterized the evolution of volcanic, seismogenic, and geothermal areas. Specifically, studies have been carried out through integration and full exploitation of remote sensing data such as satellite RADAR, optical, thermal images and their integration with GPS, EDM, and other geodetic, geophysical measurements. In this framework, particular interest has been devoted to the development of quantitative methods of a physical, mathematical, and statistical tool to build analytical and numerical models and complete data fusion, for the interpretation and characterization of the sources that control short- and long-term evolution of volcanic systems.

Interests: The research activity concerns the analysis of the deformative processes that characterize the evolution of volcanic and seismogenic areas, through the development of algorithms for the generation of deformation velocity maps and time series obtained with synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) techniques and geophysical modeling with analytical and numerical inversions. Recent activity is mainly focused on the development of multi-parametric and multiphysical methodologies for the characterization of stress sources that control the short- and long-term evolution of different geodynamic contexts. The obtained results have been published in peer-reviewed ISI journals.
Understanding the behavior and state of volcano systems represents an efficient and robust tool to reduce the associated hazards. The use of data from volcano monitoring represents a scientifically valid basis for short-term forecasts of a future eruption. In recent decades, remote sensing techniques have furnished a fundamental contribution in the growth of knowledge of volcanic systems as well as their structural evolution. Many volcanoes are inaccessible during the climax eruption (or they are located in inaccessible regions of the Earth) and may continue to be inaccessible for a long time also after the eruptive activity. To overcome these limitations, remote sensing is now playing an important role in understanding the science underlying volcanic behavior and is consequently present in any effective hazards-mitigation program.
New research lines are often driven by technological advancements in the development of novel sensors or acquisition platforms. For this reason, processing and complete data fusion of multiparametric, proximal, and remote sensing datasets is crucial for understanding the volcanic processes, increasing the interpretative capacity of the observed volcanic phenomena.
The volume will be favorable to collect studies oriented toward the understanding of several aspects of volcano systems, from the physical characterization of a system to its eruption process, and in proposing adequate multiplatform, multifrequencies, and interdisciplinary data analysis.Dr. Pietro Tizzani
