Data analysis of Infrasonic Array Network in Valle d’Aosta region for real-time monitoring of avalanche activity

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Monitoring of small-to-medium sized avalanches activity represents a crucial parameter to compare predictions and real effects. However, at present natural avalanche activity is mainly based on field observations, which have a limited range and are possible only during the daylight.

The present research has the following objectives: 1) Infrasonic analysis of the existing data in order to build a statistical model for infrasound propagation within the target area, which take into account topographical and meteorological effects. 2) Development and calibration of algorithms for real-time infrasonic signal identification and source location. 3) Combined, meteo-nivometric and infrasonic, data analysis of ground-truth avalanches (provided by the AWSAV) in order to verify the feasibility of a model of avalanche infrasound radiation

Deep knowledge of infrasonic array data acquisition, processing and interpretation are requested.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
