Abstract: Video surveillance systems are consolidated techniques for monitoring eruptive phenomena in volcanic areas. Along with these systems, which use standard video cameras, people working in this field sometimes make use of infrared cameras providing useful information about the thermal evolution of eruptions. Real-time analysis of the acquired frames is required along with image storing to analyze and classify the activity of volcanoes. Human efforts are hence required to perform monitoring tasks. In this paper a new strategy is presented, which aims to improve the performance of surveillance systems in terms of human-independent image processing. The proposed methodology is based on real time thermo graphic analysis of the area considered. The tool developed provides information about the activity being monitored.
