Etna R-T monitoring



VOLDORAD 2B database on Etna

The products released from this database are computed from raw data (level 0, binary files, .spe format) acquired at Etna since 2009 by the OPGC Doppler radar VOLDORAD 2B at La Montagnola station, in the framework of a collaboration between INGV Catania and OPGC for the monitoring explosive activity of Etna's summit craters. Products includes time series of echo power and radial velocities measured in several range gates. The computed radar products are made available in open access (display and download) for scientific use (non commercial) by the Observatoire de Physique du Globe de Clermont-Ferrand within the framework of the Service National d'Observation en Volcanologie (SNOV) of the french CNRS-INSU (under licence http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/). Quicklooks of radar data of the main eruptions in chronological order are available here. For any use of this data base, please advise F.Donnadieu@opgc.fr and make reference to :
