The Tellus project is aimed to study, on the basis of data detected from the ground, what happens during the phase preceding an earthquake, and subsequent correlation with available data received from space thanks to satellites capable of measuring electromagnetic and thermal fields. The Tellus Project consists of multidisciplinary stations suitable for the measurement of chemical, electromagnetic, meteorological and physical parameters on Earth. In particular, the study focuses on the measurements of radon emissions on limited areas in the presence of various measuring stations (Local Area Network). The measurements of radon emissions will be collected in a specific database that will automatically be updated every hour, counting data based on registered alpha decays from radon. A specific software will be able to detect and communicate to the central hall any detected seismic anomalies. The local multidisciplinary networks will be part of the "Seismic Network Arachne Tellus" (SNAT) that will handle all the data of each Local Network. Our scientific investigation has set as its ultimate goal the identification of parameters considered "seismic precursors”. The combination of data could provide a broad geophysicist framework, able to improve the current understanding of the physics of earthquakes and their processes of preparation, detectable from ground and from space.
