Short-term magma-carbonate interaction: A modelling perspective

Colucci S., Brogi F., Montagna C.P., Sottili G., Papale P.

Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 628, 118592

Short-term interaction of magma with crustal carbonates can affect a volcano's eruptive style and drive even low-viscosity magmas toward large explosive eruptions. Only a few studies have focused on short-term magma-carbonate interaction under controlled...


Experimental insights on the shear-induced crystallization of a phonotephrite magma

Di Fiore F., Vona A., Mollo S., Nazzari M., Giordano G., Romano C.

Chemical Geology, 637, 121682

In active volcanic environments, magmas that ascend within the conduit and erupt at the surface as lava flows experience physico-chemical perturbations related to temperature changes and variable degrees of deformation. We have conducted experimental...


The Italian Quaternary volcanism

Branca S., Cinquegrani A., Cioni R., Conte A.M., Conticelli S., De Astis G., de Vita S., De Rosa R., Di Vito M.A., Donato P., Forni F., Francalanci L., Gaeta M., Giaccio B., Giordano G., Giuffrida M.,...

Alpine and Mediterranean Quaternary, 36 (2), 221-284

The peninsular and insular Italy are punctuated by Quaternary volcanoes and their rocks constitute an important aliquot of the Italian Quaternary sedimentary successions. Also away from volcanoes themselves, volcanic ash layers are a common and frequent...


The March 2023 UAS-based high-resolution Digital Surface Model and orthomosaic of the NE flank of Stromboli volcano (Sicily, Italy).

Nannipieri L., Bevilacqua A., Di Traglia F., Favalli M., Fornaciai A.

Annals of Geophysics, 66, 5, DM526, 2023

Stromboli is a volcanic island in a persistent state of activity, located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the northern coast of Sicily. During the night of 25 and 26 May 2022, a massive human-caused wildfire destroyed most of the vegetation cover on the NE...


Surveying volcanic crises exercises: From open-question questionnaires to a prototype checklist

Massaro S., Sandri L., Geyer A., Cristiani C., Nave R., Barsotti S., Loughlin S., Puglisi G.

Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research, Volume 440, August 2023, 107850

Volcanic crisis exercises are usually run to test response capabilities, communication protocols, and decision-making procedures by agencies with responsibilities to cope with scenarios of volcanic unrest with inherent uncertainty, such as volcano observatories...
