Task 1:
Overall design and planning of the multi-site multi-parameter observatory in Iceland including modifications of the present sites to allow for various type of sensors to be connected and design and evaluation of infrastructure including electricity production and communications solutions for the very remote data acquisition sites. Corresponding design and planning for facilities at the center in Reykjavík to allow for the multiparameter observations transmitted from the sites. Design and planning for integration of data from the strainmeter network and water-level network into the observatory procedures will be performed. Various alternatives of electricity production methods will be evaluated including the combination of windmills and solar cells. Different remote communication technics will be evaluated and tested in the remote areas. This will include spread-spectrum data links and satellite communication systems. Different methods of data compression for the different types of data will be investigated.
