Abstract

Quaternary volcanism in the Mediterranean region was highly explosive, especially in the Roman-Campanian province, the Aeolian Islands and the Hellenic island arc. Pantelleria and Etna were less explosive. Tephra layers originating from all of these volcanoes have been encountered in Quaternary sediments. A summary of tephra layer occurrences in the Mediterranean Quaternary record is given in this paper. Correlation results and petrographic characterization techniques are described.
