Journal of Imaging - Special Issue "Imaging and Mapping the Earthquake in Italy" - Call for contributions

Between August and November, 2016, three major earthquake occurred in Central Italy. The first event, with a Magnitde (M) of 6.1, took place on 24 August, 2016; the second (M5.9) on 26 October; and the third (M6.5) on 30 October 2016. During the last months, a large number of multi-disciplinary experts, scientists, and researchers have visited said areas in order to analyze, manage, and document the events connected to the earthquakes. Different expertise has been involved in the reconnaissance and  surveying of damaged areas, with knowledge connected to geology, seismology, geomatics, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, restoration, emergency housing, etc.

The Special Issue will collect the results of the fieldwork carried out using different imaging sensors and processing strategies that were used for mapping, documenting, and analyzing the earthquakes of Central Italy in order to analyze the phenomena that occurs during the seismic swarm that is still in progress in these areas.
