Workshop on “Explosive eruptions and the Mediterranean civilizations through prehistory and history”
Where: Ustica (PA)
When: 09/12/2017 - 09/16/2017
The workshop Explosive eruptions and the Mediterranean civilizations through prehistory and history will take place 12 to 16 September 2017 in Ustica (Palermo).
Large volcanic eruptions in history lead to an integration of scientific, historical and archaeological research with studies on territory monitoring and prevention of natural disasters. The Mediterranean area, and the Tyrrhenian area in particular, has a concentration of active volcanic edifices, included in highly anthropized marine, coastal and continental contexts. This and much more will be discussed during the meeting.
The workshop is organized by the Naples Vesuvius Observatory of the INGV – National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, in collaboration with the Marine Protected Area of Ustica, the Laboratory-Museum of Earth Sciences, and the Study and Documentation Centre of Ustica.
The event will be attended by geologists, volcanologists, naturalists, archaeologists and historians. Speakers include Carlo Doglioni, President of the INGV.
