Montevergine, ritorna operativa la stazione sismografica dell’Osservatorio Meteorologico

ARI Nazionale -

Grazie alla sinergia dei volontari dell’Associazione Radiomatori di Pozzuoli e Campi Flegrei e dell’Associazione MVOBSV (Mount Vergine Observatory) da qualche giorno è tornata nuovamente operativa la stazione sismografica installata il 29 agosto del 2012, ferma da qualche tempo a causa di problematiche tecniche che hanno reso necessarie complesse operazioni di aggiornamento e ripristino.

La stazione è attualmente costituita da tre geofoni: uno verticale, in grado di rilevare sismi nel raggio di circa 400 km dal Santuario, e due orizzontali, che garantiscono un monitoraggio costante di tutto il nostro emisfero. L’ubicazione nella solida roccia calcarea della quale è costituito il complesso del Partenio e la posizione in una delle zone più sismiche della penisola, lo posizionano ai primi posti per importanza della rete. È un valore aggiunto per la ricerca scientifica perpetrata presso l’osservatorio stesso. I sismogrammi rilevati dai geofoni sono consultabili, con aggiornamenti in tempo reale sul portale e monitorati dalla rete I.E.S.N. (Italian Experimental Seismic Network)

Considerazioni di fine anno
di Vincenzo Favata, IT9IZY

Un gruppo di giovani che si riunisce per liberare la propria creatività e la propria solidarietà, un edificio abbandonato che torna a nuova vita. E' questa l'anima dell'ARI, una struttura, fino a qualche anno addietro, dilaniata da lotte interne, oggi trasformata in un gruppo coeso e proiettato verso il futuro.

Sono trascorsi alcuni anni da quando, dopo numerose controversie legali, tutte brillantemente affrontate e concluse con la vittoria della nostra Associazione in tutti i gradi di giudizio, l'attuale gruppo dirigente, invariato nei suoi componenti di vertice, ha avuto il privilegio di dirigere la nostra Associazione, senza tentennamenti, verso porti sicuri, consentendo, al contempo, a tutte le componenti associative di manifestare liberamente le  esigenze peculiari di ognuna di esse. Ovviamente, le transizioni in avanti sono state realizzate nel pieno rispetto del vigente Statuto e nei limiti consentiti dalla legge e senza opposizioni.
