Integrated geophysical studies of Nisyros Island, Greece
The field campaign conducted on the volcanic island of Nisyros in 2006 provided an opportunity to conduct a diverse research program targeted at better understanding the volcanic system and structural setting of the volcano. An integrated monitoring campaign used GPS together with seismic, gravity and electro-magnetic measurements over sustained periods to give insight into the temporal variations in the hydrothermal system. Continued monitoring of the micro-gravity network was complemented by Rapid Static GPS measurements. Finally, kinematic GPS methods were used to support a static gravity survey of the caldera region to provide further information on the structural setting.
