description

  • The chemical composition of Etna's plume is monitored by a network of permanent MultiGAS instruments for accurate retrieval of CO2 /SO2 ratios in the plume, and calculation of the CO2 output (after combination with UV sensed SO2 fluxes). We also regularly conduct discrete measurement campaigns.
