Volcanic hazards evaluation using telescopes.

A detailed understanding of a volcano inner structure is one of the key-points for the volcanic hazards evaluation. Using telescopes based on the atmospheric Cherenkov imaging technique, IASF-Palermo researcher proposed a new approach to study the interior of volcanoes detecting the Cherenkov light produced by relativistic cosmic-ray muons that survive after crossing the volcano.
