As demonstrated by many lectures, seismic and volcanic phenomena are strongly
related to ground deformation and gaseous emissions.
Thus to mitigate
environmental risks, a continuous monitoring of ground strain and of the changes
in the composition of gaseous emissions can be a very useful tool.
(Environmental Integrated Monitoring System) Project aims at fixing, realizing
and experimenting an innovative regional monitoring system, based on
innovative optoelectronic devices, which is able to exceed the existing limits in
order to increase sensibly the interpretation of geo-physical phenomena and the
long term mitigation of seismic and volcanic hazards.

Natural hazards risk evaluation has been one on the most investigated topics by
scientific community in the last decades.
Nevertheless seismic and volcanic
events prevention and forecasting is still one of the major goals to guarantee the
quality of life in high crowded areas.
Seismic and volcanic risk mitigation is essentially based on accurate
processing monitoring, to follow and forecast their evolution.
