Changes and challenges following the 1997 Colfiorito earthquake: the evolution of the use of the Internet for large seismic events

G. Rubbia, R. Camassi

Abstract


The September 26, 1997 Central Italy earthquake represents the first Italian large seismic event on the occasion of which Internet was intensively exploited to exchange and disseminate data, information and news. The paper illustrates how national and international seismological institutions disseminate information about earthquakes ten years ago. A web evolution is sketched, and some features that can be of interest today in the seismological community are presented.
