The Use of Stratigraphic Data for the Mitigation of Hazards at Volcanoes: The Example of Somma–Vesuvius (Italy)
Here, a review of the geological methods used for constructing hazard maps at Somma–Vesuvius is presented. It deals with the description of methodology and stratigraphic data used for the construction of hazard maps for pyroclastic density currents and proximal and distal fallout of pyroclastic material.
