Structure and evolution of the Bay of Pozzuoli (Italy) using marine seismic reflection data: implications for collapse of the Campi Flegrei caldera
Digital marine seismic reflection data acquired in 1973 in the Bay of Pozzuoli, and recently reprocessed, were used to study the volcanological evolution of the marine sector of Campi Flegrei CalderaExpand
Seismic study of the Mesozoic carbonate basement around Mt. Somma–Vesuvius, Italy
Abstract Fifteen seismic reflection lines from AGIP surveys, in and around the Campanian Plain and Mt. Somma–Vesuvius (south Italy) have been interpreted. The attention has been focused to theExpand
Seismic study of the ‘41st Parallel’ Fault System offshore the Campanian–Latial continental margin, Italy
Abstract A set of seismic reflection lines, collected in the Southern Tyrrhenian Sea offshore the Campanian–Latial continental margin has been selected and interpreted. The aim is to characterize:Expand
Geophysical and hydrogeological experiments from a shallow hydrothermal system at Solfatara Volcano, Campi Flegrei, Italy: Response to caldera unrest
[1] Integration of high-resolution geophysical and hydrogeological investigations at Solfatara Volcano, Campi Flegrei, Italy, allowed us to (1) image the shallow and intermediate subsurface to theExpand
High‐resolution seismic tomography across the 1980 (Ms 6.9) Southern Italy earthquake fault scarp
[1] A high-resolution multi-fold wide-angle seismic survey carried out across the Irpinia fault, Southern Italy, yields new information about the shallow structure of this normal fault that wasExpand
The role of flank failure in modifying the shallow plumbing system of volcanoes: An example from Somma‐Vesuvius, Italy
The joined interpretation of structural, geophysical, historical and DTM-extracted data collected on the Somma-Vesuvius volcano reveals the presence of a spoon-shaped paleo-depression, which isExpand
The western undersea section of the Ischia volcanic complex (Italy, Tyrrhenian sea) inferred by marine geophysical data
[1] Ischia Island represents only the remnant of a once larger volcanic complex. To prove this hypothesis about 600 km of new marine geophysical data were analysed. Results reveal that the westernExpand
Relative roles of rifting tectonics and magma ascent processes: Inferences from geophysical, structural, volcanological, and geochemical data for the Neapolitan volcanic region (southern Italy)
[1] The Neapolitan volcanic region is located within the graben structure of the Campanian Plain (CP), which developed between the western sector of the Appenine Chain and the eastern margin of theExpand
Active hydrothermal discharge on the submarine Aeolian Arc
[1] In November 2007 we conducted a water column and seafloor mapping study of the submarine volcanoes of the Aeolian Arc in the southern Tyrrhenian Sea aboard the R/V Urania. On 26Expand
Detecting young, slow‐slipping active faults by geologic and multidisciplinary high‐resolution geophysical investigations: A case study from the Apennine seismic belt, Italy.
[1] The Southern Apennines range of Italy presents significant challenges for active fault detection due to the complex structural setting inherited from previous contractional tectonics, coupled toExpand
