A comprehensive volcanological study of the Albano multiple maar (Alban Hills, Italy) using (i) 40Ar/39Ar geochronology of the most complete stratigraphic section and other proximal and distal outcrops and (ii) petrographic observations, phase analyses of major and trace elements, and Sr and O isotopic analyses of the pyroclastic deposits shows that volcanic activity at Albano was strongly discontinuous, with a first eruptive cycle at 69±1 ka producing at least two eruptions, and a second cycle… 

The Volsci Volcanic Field (central Italy): eruptive history, magma system and implications on continental subduction processes

Here, we report on the Quaternary Volsci Volcanic Field (VVF, central Italy). In light of new 40Ar/39Ar geochronological data and compositional characterization of juvenile eruptive products, we



Post-caldera activity in the Alban Hills volcanic district (Italy): 40Ar/39Ar geochronology and insights into magma evolution

We present 24 40Ar/39Ar ages for the youngest volcanic products from the Alban Hills volcanic district (Rome). Combined with petrological data on these products, we have attempted to define the

A large K-foiditic hydromagmatic eruption from the early activity of the Alban Hills Volcanic District, Italy

In this paper we discuss the uncommon case of an energetic, pyroclastic-flow-forming eruption with a SiO2-poor (42–45 wt.%), K-foiditic magma composition. The Trigoria-Tor de' Cenci Tuff (TTC; 561

Roman comagmatic province (central Italy): Evidence for subduction-related magma genesis

Geochemical data on mafic volcanics show that important affinities exist between the Roman and the calc-alkaline rocks from the Aeolian arc (south Tyrrhenian Sea). These affinities, together with the

Mineralogical and geochemical study of granular xenoliths from the Alban Hills volcano, Central Italy: bearing on evolutionary processes in potassic magma chambers

Granular xenoliths (ejecta) from pyroclastic deposits emplaced during the latest stages of activity of the Alban Hills volcano range from ultramafic to salic. Ultramafic types consist of various
