The New Catalogue of Italian Tsunamis
A new Italian tsunami catalogue (ITC) is presented here. It contains 67 events, covering the period from the tsunamigenic Plinian eruption of Vesuvius (79AD) until today. It is the result of anExpand

Effects of magnitude uncertainties on estimating the parameters in the Gutenberg-Richter frequency-magnitude law
The evaluation of the parameters in the Gutenberg-Richter (GR) frequency-magnitude law log Nr = a − bm is shown to be strongly affected by magnitude uncertainties. If the magnitude errors are assumedExpand

The landslides and tsunamis of the 30th of December 2002 in Stromboli analysed through numerical simulations
On the 30th of December 2002 two tsunamis were generated only 7 min apart in Stromboli, southern Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy. They represented the peak of a volcanic crisis that started 2 days before withExpand

Source of the 1693 Catania earthquake and tsunami (southern Italy): New evidence from tsunami modeling of a locked subduction fault plane
[1] The 1693 Catania earthquake, which caused 60000 deaths in eastern Sicily and generated a 5–10 m high tsunami, is investigated. GPS data indicate ESE-WNW convergence in the Calabrian arc at 4–5Expand

IDENTIFYING DIFFERENT REGIMES IN ERUPTIVE ACTIVITY: AN APPLICATION TO ETNA VOLCANO
The objective identification of different regimes in the eruptive time-history of a volcano is crucial to the understanding of its physics. While a problem well-known in statistical literature underExpand
