|Abstract: ||We applied an automatic pattern recognition technique,
known as Support Vector Machine (SVM), to classify
volcanic tremor data recorded during different states of
activity at Etna volcano, Italy. The seismic signal was
recorded at a station deployed 6 km southeast of the summit
craters from 1 July to 15 August, 2001, a time span
encompassing episodes of lava fountains and a 23 day-long
effusive activity. Trained by a supervised learning algorithm,
the classifier learned to recognize patterns belonging to four
classes, i.e., pre-eruptive, lava fountains, eruptive, and posteruptive.
Training and test of the classifier were carried out
using 425 spectrogram-based feature vectors. Following
cross-validation with a random subsampling strategy,
SVM correctly classified 94.7 ± 2.4% of the data. The
performance was confirmed by a leave-one-out strategy,
with 401 matches out of 425 patterns. Misclassifications
highlighted intrinsic fuzziness of class memberships of
the signals, particularly during transitional phases.
