This is a Full Scientific Report resulting from NERC Geophysical Equipment Facility Loan 778, principal investigator Dr Hazel Rymer.


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.
