Monitoraggio remoto delle deformazioni nell’isola di Santorini: una procedura integrata di analisi dati GPS presso la Sezione INGV di Bologna

Arianna Pesci, Giuseppe Casula, Giordano Teza, Enzo Boschi


Il GPS (Global Positioning System) è un noto sistema di posizionamento globale in grado di fornire le coordinate spaziali di unoperatore, se munito di antenna e ricevitore satellitari, in qualunque punto della terra esso si trovi, in qualunque condizionemeteo ed in qualsiasi ora del giorno. Oggi al GPS, che è di proprietà del Dipartimento della Difesa degli Stati Uniti d'America(US DoD), si affiancano il GLONASS (sistema analogo russo) e altri sistemi di posizionamento globale basati su tecniche interferometriche spaziali a partire da segnali a microonde, ad esempio i nascenti Galileo (europeo) e BeiDou (cinese). Per questo motivo si parla diffusamente di sistemi GNSS cioè Global Navigation Satellite System.


Remote monitoring of deformations in the island of Santorini: an integrated procedure for GPS data analysis at the INGV in Bologna

The GPS (Global Positioning System) is a well-known global positioning  system  capable  of  providing  the  spatial  coordi-nates of an operator, if equipped with an antenna and a re-ceiver satellite, at any point on the earth , and in any weather conditions and at any time of the day. Today, the GPS, which is owned by the Department of Defense of the United States of America (U.S. DoD), is aided by the GLONASS (the Russian analogue system) and other global positioning systems based on interferometry from space microwave signals, for example, the  nascent  Galileo  (European)  and  Beidou  (China).  For  this reason we talk at today about GNSS Global Navigation Satel-lite System.
