We present the results of one year of continuous radon monitoring at Stromboli volcano collected at two automated real-time stations during 2008-2009. Multiple Linear Regression statistics (including the effects of tidal forces) led us to compute the residuals given by the difference of measured and calculated 222Rn concentrations. The cross-check between the daily measured radon activities and the absolute variations in radon residuals, for the data collected at the summit station, give us the opportunity to suggest a methodological approach that can be used in the attempt of predicting some major changes in volcanic activity.

Abstract

We present the results of one year of continuous radon monitoring at Stromboli volcano collected at two automated real-time stations during 2008-2009. Multiple Linear Regression statistics (including the effects of tidal forces) led us to compute the residuals given by the difference of measured and calculated 222Rn concentrations. The cross-check between the daily measured radon activities and the absolute variations in radon residuals, for the data collected at the summit station, give us the opportunity to suggest a methodological approach that can be used in the attempt of predicting some major changes in volcanic activity.
