Abstract

The Morphotectonic Map of Mt. Etna is based on detailed field survey of morphologic and structural features outcropping on the volcanic edifice, supported by detailed analysis of orthophotos, stereo-pair photographs and satellite images. It helps to define more completely and accurately than previously done the structural network of active features that characterizes the volcanic edifice, and the relationships between faulting, fissuring and dyke swarms. Morpho-structural data are drawn on a schematic geological map where the main sedimentary and volcanic units have been reported. Morphotectonic analysis shows that Mt. Etna volcano exhibits active extensional features represented by normal faults and eruptive fissures which are related to shallow low-energy seismicity. - (NF)
