On July 24th, 2014 the active seismic experiment TOMO-ETNA, MED-SUV finalized its active phase with the withdrawal of the portable short period seismic network deployed in Etna volcano and surrounding areas. The Broad Band seismic network, composed by 20 stations, remained operative until the end of October 2014. The final recovery of the total seismic network implies the end of the TOMO-ETNA seismic experiment.
Previously the Oceanographic Vessel “Sarmiento de Gamboa” arrived to the Catania harbor on July 20th, after the recovery of 25 short period OBSs, leaving operative other 2 Broad Band OBSs to be recover at the end of the month of November 2014. The “Sarmiento de Gamboa” on July 16th finished the activities associated to the reflection experiment.
