AbstractThe Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanolo- gia (INGV) is an Italian research institution, with focus on Earth Sciences. INGV runs the Italian National Seismic Net- work (Rete Sismica Nazionale, RSN) and other networks at national scale for monitoring earthquakes and tsunami as a part of the National Civil Protection System coordinated by the Italian Department of Civil Protection (Dipartimento di Protezione Civile, DPC). RSN is composed of about 400 stations, mainly broad- band, installed in the Country and in the surrounding regions; about 110 stations feature also co-located strong motion in- struments, and about 180 have GPS receivers and belong to the National GPS network (Rete Integrata Nazionale GPS, RING). The data acquisition system was designed to accomplish, in near-real-time, automatic earthquake detection, hypocen- ter and magnitude determination, moment tensors, shake maps and other products of interest for DPC. Database archiving of all parametric results are closely linked to the existing procedures of the INGV seismic monitoring envi- ronment and surveillance procedures. INGV is one of the primary nodes of ORFEUS (Observatories & Research Facil- ities for European Seismology) EIDA (European Integrated Data Archive) for the archiving and distribution of contin- uous, quality checked seismic data. The strong motion net- work data are archived and distributed both in EIDA and in event based archives; GPS data, from the RING network are also archived, analyzed and distributed at INGV. Overall, the Italian earthquake surveillance service pro- vides, in quasi real-time, hypocenter parameters to the DPC. These are then revised routinely by the analysts of the Ital- ian Seismic Bulletin (Bollettino Sismico Italiano, BSI). The results are published on the web, these are available to both the scientific community and the general public. The INGV surveillance includes a pre-operational tsunami alert service since INGV is one of the Tsunami Service providers of the North-eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean Tsunami warning System (NEAMTWS).
