Geri G., Marson I., Rossi A., Toro B. Gravity and elevation changes in the Travale geothermal field (Tuscany Italy). In: Geothermics, vol. 11 (3) pp. 153 - 161. Elsevier, 1982.
The results of precise levelling measurements on a specially constructed network of benchmark in the Travale geothermal area (Tuscany, Italy) revealed the subsidence of the central part of this area, at an average rate of 20 mm/year in the period 1978-1980. Two sets of gravity measurements over the same time-interval, using two Lacoste- Romberg gravimeters, have an average standard error of 2-4 µGal for the main network and 4-8 µGal for the auxiliary network. The observed g variations fall within the error range in most of the stations. The variations noted in the stations in the south-western area of the field clearly fall outside the confidence interval, and cannot entirely be attributed to changes in elevation. An asbolute gravity station was set up at Palazzo al Piano (Siena), where measurements were made by IMGC absolute gravimeter, to detect any long-term gravity variations induced by geodynamic events
