Terremoti 2.0: dal sismometro al web

Italy is a seismic country: about 20,000 earthquakes are located every year, that is on average 60 events per day, or one earthquake every half an hour or less. Seismic monitoring centres today compute earthquake parameters within a few tens of seconds. Ingv sends alert to Civil Protection Service within 2 minutes from the earthquake occurrence, whereas only revised data are published to the web and social media after ~10’-20’. Although this is a great improvement compared to what was done 15 years ago, the speed and capillarity of (social) media require increasingly precise and rapid information. On one side we are going to reduce the time gap publishing fast, automatic locations, on the other side we aim to boost the quantity and quality of released information as well as the involvement of citizens in the communication. Indeed, it is very important to increase the knowledge and the awareness of seismic risk, in order to avoid finding ourselves unprepared when the next earthquake will strike.
