Abstract

A new volcano-tectonic map of Etna volcano has been compiled through a morphotectonic analysis performed with detailed field mapping, high-resolution DEM and orthoimages, constrained by seismotectonic data. In this study, the AA. present a homogeneous mapping of the volcano-tectonic and tectonic elements on the whole volcano, consistent with the updated knowledge on the geology and active tectonics observed in historical times. Finally, a seismotectonic model summarises the information regarding seismic hazard, with reference to the additional, potentially severe effects induced by surface faulting. - (NF)
