Transferability of GEOWARN systems to other European volcanoes > The second test site Campi Flegrei (Italy) - a transferability test > Campi Flegrei

Campi Flegrei

The Phlegrean fields (Campi Flegrei) belong to the Campanian Volcanic province, which also includes Ischia, Procida and Vesuvius, and is a region densely populated with 3.5 million people (Fig. 3).

The magmatic system is still active: the last eruption occurred in the year 1538 at Monte Nuovo and a phreatic explosion occurred in 1159 at the Solfatara volcano. The deformation history of Campi Flegrei has been characterized by phases of uplift and subsidence.

Several methodologies are applied in a completely new way to achieve the necessary results.
