Historical Activity at Campi Flegrei Caldera, Southern Italy: A Reprint from “Earthquakes and Volcanoes”
John Dvorak (au); Paolo Gasparini (au)
In the year 1538 a very large earthquake followed by loud thunder began a week-long eruption in Campi Flegrei, a volcanic caldera located along the west coast of southern Italy near Naples. This event has been the only eruption of Campi Flegrei in 4,000 years. After 430 years of quiescence, signs of renewed activity were first recognized in late 1969. Several hundred earthquakes from 1983 to 1984 extensively damaged buildings in Pozzuoli, located in the center of Campi Flegrei, and prompted the evacuation of 40,000 people. This article summarizes the history of activity in Campi Flegrei, which spans 2,000 years. Further studies of this caldera will improve our understanding of the behavior of long-quiescent volcanic systems. Illustrations.
