A special unmanned multidisciplinary observatory will be designed and
tested in the remote area near the center of the Iceland Hotspot activity.
This will be made in close cooperation, especially with WP 2, which
carries out the designing part. The necessary environment, including
providing electrical power and appropriate network communication will
be carried out by upgrading the seismic station VON. Among other activities
to prepare the environments is the construction of observational piers and
housing to fit the sensors to be introduced. This task will be carried out
mainly during the first two years of the project.
