|Abstract: ||In the paper by Gouhier, M., Harris, A., Calvari, S., Labazuy,
P., Guéhenneux, Y., Donnadieu, F., Valade, S, entitled “Lava
discharge during Etna’s January 2011 fire fountain tracked
using MSG-SEVIRI” (Bull Volcanol (2012) 74:787–793,
DOI 10.1007/s00445-011-0572-y), we present data from a
Doppler radar (VOLDORAD 2B). This ground-based Lband
radar has been monitoring the eruptive activity of the
summit craters of Mt. Etna in real-time since July 2009 from a
site about 3.5 km SSE of the craters. Examples of applications
of this type of radar are reviewed by Donnadieu (2012)
and shown on the VOLDORAD website (http://wwwobs.
Although designed and owned by the Observatoire de
Physique du Globe in Clermont-Ferrand (OPGC), France,
VOLDORAD 2B is operated jointly with the INGV-Catania
(Italy) in the framework of a technical and scientific collaboration
agreement between the INGV of Catania, the French
CNRS and the OPGC-Université Blaise Pascal in Clermont-
Ferrand. The system also utilizes a dedicated micropatch
antenna designed at the University of Calabria (Boccia et al.
2010) and owned by INGV. The objective of the joint acquisition
of the radar data by INGV-Catania and the OPGC is
twofold: (1) to mitigate volcanic risks at Etna by better assessing
the hazards arising from ash plumes and (2) to allow detailed
study of volcanic activity and its environmental impact.
In the paper by Gouhier et al. (2012), we failed to
highlight this important collaboration between the INGV
Catania and the OPGC; a cooperation essential for the past,
current and future generation of such valuable data sets.
Specifically we wish to acknowledge the roles of Mauro
Coltelli, Michele Prestifilippo and Simona Scollo for their
important input into this project, and pivotal role in setting
up, and maintaining, this collaborative deployment.|
