The danger of the Campi Flegrei volcano of Italy
Italian people must have evacuation plans for the eruption of a huge underground volcano in southern Italy, warned the expert in volcanic risk, DR. Christopher Kilburn. The Campi Flegrei volcano of Italy is ‘active and will erupt again,’ he warned the DR. Christopher Kilburn, professor at the University College London and expert in volcanic risks. Speaking to Express.co.uk, dr. Kilburn said: They should be preparing for an eruption simply because it is an active volcano, not because an eruption is as expected soon or something, but it is an active volcano and will explode again.
If you have hundreds of thousands of people basically living at the top of the volcano, you should have some emergency plans and, in fact, they are developing. ‘The basic plan already exists, but it is more sophisticated. The Vesubio Observatory is developing plans that, despite the name, are also responsible for Campi Flegrei and Italian Civil Protection ’. The doctor. Kilburn said it is ‘important to take into account’ that the volcano is active. It is important that we ensure that plans are being made and that we should not worry every day that something can happen because it is not really like.
In a 2017 study with the Vesubio Observatory in Naples, the DR. Kilburn said that Campi Flegrei could be preparing for another eruption. When studying how the land is cracking and moving in Campi Flegrei, we think it could be reaching a critical stage in which more disturbances will increase the possibility of an eruption, and it is imperative that the authorities are prepared for this. We do not know when or if this long -term discomfort will lead to an eruption, but Campi Flegrei is following a trend that we have seen when we try our model in other volcanoes.
As Rabaul in Papua New Guinea, El Hierro in the Canary Islands and Soufriere Hills in Montserrat in the Caribbean. A new study affirms that the massive volcano could be preparing for another eruption, which could have disastrous consequences for the city of Naples. A team led by Francesca Forni of the Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology in Switzerland has been studying 23 previous eruptions in the Campi Flegrei Caldera, concluding the Magma reservoir under the area, which they described as one of the most dangerous regions of Earth.
Be building before a mass explosion. His research, published in the journal Science Advances, included a detailed analysis of rocks, minerals and glass samples of each of the eruptions in an effort to detect changes in magmatic temperature and water content throughout eruptive historyregion of. The region was the scenario of two huge eruptions: Ignimbrite (CI) of Campanian, 39,000 years ago and the eruption of Napolitan Yellow Tuff (NYT) that occurred 15,000 years ago, plus many minor events.
The most recent was the eruption of Mount Nuovo in 1538. Campi Flegrei is about 11 miles (18 kilometers) west of Naples, where approximately one million people live. Mount Vesubio is about 13 miles (22 km) east of the city. Unlike many volcanoes, Campi Flegregi is mainly flat and is accessible on foot. Around 360,000 people live in the boiler of Campi Flegrei, which covers more than 38 square miles (100 square kilometers) and is the historically closest volcano to London. If they were going to explode, you could interrupt air traffic throughout Europe.
To conclude, it is known that a volcano is a geological phenomenon which accumulates molten and solid matter, which is subsequently thrown by a chimney, knowing this an eruption can create great disasters, it is because of them that in Italy prevention and evacuationIt is so important taking into account what can happen, researchers have let the danger know if this happens if people continue in their homes, all detailed investigations about rocks and their components have also been taken into account.
