Task 3: Preparing environments for the HOTSPOT Observatory Station design and testing.

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.
