GECO combines scientific
and technological skills
Science and technology for resilience to natural hazards
Provide economic activities and local authorities that live with natural hazards with innovative monitoring techniques with a high scientific content and intuitive IoT tools to mitigate the risks themselves and improve their perception.
We apply geophysics to reduce risks and threats
GECO joins competences and experiences in the earth sciences field with in-depth knowledges about IoT technologies and innovative geophysical methodologies.
Dr. Giacomo Ulivieri

Geophysical consultancies and
natural hazard monitoring solutions
Geophysical consultancies and natural hazard monitoring solutions
GECO offers high value consultancies during the design, the development and the management stages of geophysical monitoring and early warning systems. We provide consultancy regarding the technical aspects related to the monitoring network setup, the study of the monitored phenomena, the choice of standard analysis software, the realization of customized software and algorithms for data analysis (Python, C++, Matlab) and real-time monitoring and automatic alerting.
The 24/7 monitoring of natural risks offers the opportunity to learn about the dynamics of the phenomenon and to develop analysis techniques and effective alert criteria for risk mitigation (predictive approach).
GECO designs and realizes infrasonic and seismic antennas capable to detect remotely (> 1 km) signals produced by a large variety of natural phenomena including volcanic eruptions, rock and snow avalanches, debris flow, rockfall, glacier dynamics …. The monitor solutions that GECO offer include ad-hoc software for the real-time data analysis and automatic notification of anomalies.
