Open Access Seafloor Response to Large Volcanic Activity and Geohazard Implications in Naples Bay, Southern Italy

In this study, marine geophysical investigations were utilized to recognize, compare and classify seafloor features related to volcanic activity in the Naples Bay, southern Italy. The dataset includes swath bathymetry, side-scan sonar records, as well as single-channel and multichannel reflection seismics. Ground truth was provided by detailed analysis of gravity cores. By integrating these data, large portions of the seafloor were mapped, providing important information for geohazard assessment.
