Mount Melbourne (74°21′ S, 164°43′ E) is a quiescent volcano located in northern Victoria Land, Antarctica. Tilt signals have been recorded on Mount Melbourne since early 1989 by a permanent shallow borehole tiltmeter network comprising five stations. An overall picture of tilt, air and permafrost temperatures over 15 years of continuous recording data is reported. We focused our observations on long-term tilt trends that at the end of 1997 showed coherent changes at the three highest altitude…

Tilt measurements on volcanoes: more than a hundred years of recordings
Tilt measurements represent one of the earliest methods to detect ground deformation on volcanoes with the first acquisition being made on Kilauea (Hawaii) in 1912-13. Tilt is a powerful tool for
Chapter 7.3 Mount Melbourne and Mount Rittmann
Abstract Mount Melbourne and Mount Rittmann are quiescent, although potentially explosive, alkaline volcanoes located 100 km apart in Northern Victoria Land quite close to three stations (Mario
Velocity Anomaly of Campbell Glacier, East Antarctica, Observed by Double-Differential Interferometric SAR and Ice Penetrating Radar
The sporadic shift of the location of anomalies suggests complex pressure melting and transportation of the basal water over the bed hill along the glacial valley where stick-slip and pressure melting can occur, resulting in temporal variation of ice velocity.


Air and permafrost temperatures at Mount Melbourne (1989–98)
Recent meteorological studies suggest a mixed pattern of climate change in Antarctica: a general cooling of the interior continent and warming in the Antarctic Peninsula over the past several decades
Mt. Melbourne volcano, antarctica: Evidence of seismicity related to volcanic activity
Characterization of the microseismic activity (ML<2.0) has been performed at Mt. Melbourne since 1990. We recorded a group of low frequency events with common morphological characteristics, i.e., an
Tilt measurements at Vulcano Island
A network of tiltmeters has been operational on Vulcano Island for numerous years. At present, the network comprises five functioning borehole stations, four of which are installed at 8-10 m and
High precision tilt observation at Mt. Etna Volcano, Italy
In 2007–2008, we installed on Mt. Etna two deep tilt stations using high resolution, self-leveling instruments. These installations are a result of accurate instrument tests, site selection, drilling
Stratigraphy, geochronology and evolution of the Mt. Melbourne volcanic field (North Victoria Land, Antarctica)
Mt. Melbourne (2,732 m a.s.l.) is a large quiescent stratovolcano located in Northern Victoria Land (Antarctica) and is one of a handful of volcanoes on the Antarctic plate with the potential for
Twenty‐five years of continuous borehole tilt and vertical displacement data at Mount Etna: Insights on long‐term volcanic dynamics
We report a 25 year‐long data set (1990–2014) of combined continuous tilt and GPS vertical displacement series recorded at Etna volcano. To our knowledge, this is the first time that such a data set
Cyclic ground tilt associated with the 2004–2008 eruption of Mount St. Helens
[1] The long-term behavior of the 2004–2008 effusive eruption of Mount St. Helens was characterized by a gradual decline in the rates of seismicity, dome growth, and broad-scale ground deformation,
A new dyke intrusion style for the Mount Etna May 2008 eruption modelled through continuous tilt and GPS data
After a recharge phase that began in 2007, on 13 May 2008, a new eruption started on Mt. Etna volcano. The final intrusion was very fast, accompanied by a violent seismic swarm and marked by ground
Spatial Patterns of Variability in Antarctic Surface Temperature: Connections to the Southern Hemisphere Annular Mode and the Southern Oscillation
The 17‐year (1982–1998) trend in surface temperature shows a general cooling over the Antarctic continent, warming of the sea ice zone, with moderate changes over the oceans. Warming of the
