My research concerns the application of proximal sensors to detect volcanic surficial phenomena in order to unravel the causative subsurface processes: deformation and temperature measurements are performed in the field by means of Ground Based InSAR (GB-InSAR) and Forward Looking Infrared Camera (FLIR) respectively. Both the tools have the advantage of providing maps with densely spaced data and historical database can be created. Collected data are expected to improve, in the future, our knowledge of the volcanic dynamics and our ability in eruption forecasting, i.e. concerning vent positioning and erupted volumes.
