  journal={Natural Hazards},
Groundwater surveys were performed by detailed(around 300 sites) grid-analysis of water temperature, pH, redox potential, electrical conductivity, 222Rn, alkalinity and by calculating the pCO2, throughout the Ciampino and Marino towns in the Alban Hills quiescent volcano (Central Italy). Following several episodes of dangerous CO2 exhalation from soils during the last 20 years and earlier ashistorically recorded, the work aimed at assessing the Natural Gas Hazard (NGH) including the indoor-Rn… 

A multi-instrumental geochemical approach to assess the environmental impact of CO 2-rich gas emissions in a densely populated area : The case of Cava dei Selci ( Latium , Italy )

The Colli Albani volcanic complex (Lazio, Italy) hosts areas characterized by anomalously high emissions of CO2rich gases (e.g. Tivoli, Cava dei Selci, Tor Caldara, Solforata). The source of these

Noble Gas and Carbon Isotope Systematics at the Seemingly Inactive Ciomadul Volcano (Eastern‐Central Europe, Romania): Evidence for Volcanic Degassing

Ciomadul is the youngest volcano in the Carpathian‐Pannonian Region, Eastern‐Central Europe, which last erupted 30 ka. This volcano is considered to be inactive, however, combined evidence from

40Ar/39Ar geochronology of Roman volcanic province tephra in the Tiber River valley: Age calibration of middle Pleistocene sea-level changes

The close proximity of the Roman volcanic province to the Tyrrhenian Sea coastline provides a unique opportunity to combine clastic stratigraphy with 40 Ar/ 39 Ar geochronology to constrain the

Groundwater Chemistry in some Italian Seismic Areas: Space and Time Correlations with Tectonic Features and Seismic Activity

Some results of the ING research program on geochemical earthquake forerunners, launched in 1990 (Dall'Aglio et al., 1991), are discussed herewith. The research activity is performed along with two

222 Rn study throughout different seismotectonical areas: comparison between different techniques for discrete monitoring

n the frame of the geochemical monitoring of seismicity mainly aimed at deepening the relationships between active seismotectonics and fluid geochemistry, i.e. earthquake prediction, a 222 Rn study

Three-dimensional velocity structure and earthquake relocation in the Alban Hills volcano, Central Italy

Abstract The Alban Hills is a Quaternary volcano located along the Tyrrhenian margin of the Apennines (Central Italy), which has erupted from 0.7 to 0.027 Ma. The high density of population around
