Elenco Sessioni proposte

P1. The earthquakes and the related risk assessment: a multidisciplinary point of view
A. Amato (INGV, Roma), M. Barchi (UNIPG), M. Della Seta (UNIROMA1), P. Galli (DPC, Roma), G. Lavecchia (UNICH)

The recent earthquakes in Italy have focused the attention of the media on the risk connected with natural disasters of increasing frequency and intensity. These disasters pose threats to prominent cultural and natural heritage sites of the world. The aim of this session is to contribute towards reducing the risks due to earthquakes in short and long term, by sharing various case studies carried out or planned for mitigating their impacts and developing solutions with a multidisciplinary approach.

P2. Cosmochemistry of planetary materials and planetary processes
L. Folco (UNIPI), C. Carli (IAPS-INAF, Roma)

This session focuses on the cosmochemistry of planetary materials to better understand the processes by which the minor bodies and planets of the solar system formed and evolved. The session covers all aspects of cosmochemistry and meteoritics (including meteorites, micrometeorites, interplanetary dust particles, materials acquired through sample return missions from asteroids, comets and the Moon), orbiter and lander compositional analyses of planetary surfaces, as well as impact processes on earth and other bodies in the Solar System.

P3. Antarctica: a privileged observatory to understand the dynamics of the planet Earth
M. Pompilio (INGV, Pisa), C. Baroni (UNIPI), A.M. Fioretti (IGG-CNR, Padova), E. Lodolo (OGS, Trieste)

Antarctica researches are crucial to understanding the natural variability in the planet, the processes governing global changes, the effects of human activities on the Earth and on the climate system. Antarctica is one of the privileged places where the interactions between the lithosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere can be observed. These observations allow to understand how these elements, individually or in an integrated way, are connected to the global climate system. In this context, Earth sciences have a fundamental role because they are able to monitor ongoing processes and to track their evolution in the past. Over the past 30 years, the Italian community has gained an increasingly important role in the international context of Antarctic researches. The Italian Antarctic researches are now in a maturity stage that requires new ideas and new energies to start a further development stage. This multidisciplinary session aims at i) collecting contributions reporting the state of the art of the different fields of earth sciences; ii) presenting and discussing new ideas, possible developments and innovative approaches; iii) increasing the awareness of the entire Italian scientific community and in particular the youngest members toward Antarctica topics.

P4. An entire rock entrapped inside a mineral grain. What we can learn from it?
M. Alvaro (UNIPV), M. Scambelluri (UNIGE)

Solid and fluid inclusions in minerals carry a wealth of information on geological processes otherwise invisible at whole rock scale. Information on (i) residual stresses, mineral growth, pressure-temperature conditions of encapsulation, and on (ii) fluid composition, mineral solubility, redox conditions, metasomatic processes, magma genesis, mass and heat transfer are respectively recorded by solid and fluid inclusions and by their mineral hosts. The correct interpretation of these records requires careful analysis. Recent advances in methodological and technical approaches significantly improved our capability of extracting such information.

P5. New insights on the mineralogical, petrological and geochemical composition of the lithosphere and implications on its geodynamical evolution
P. Comodi (UNIPG), C. Bonadiman (UNIFE), P. Fumagalli (UNIMI)

The lithosphere, the outermost shell of terrestrial-type planets is the source of those geological events that determine the planets' surface architecture and in turn affect our life. Its deep knowledge involves always interdisciplinary studies spanning from mineralogy to petrology, from geochemistry to geodynamics by means of experimental, theoretical and petrological approaches. This session intends to collect recent efforts aimed at improving the mineralogical, petrological and geochemical characterization of the lithosphere as well as understanding how these features affect the planetary body geodynamic. Theoretical and experimental studies are welcome both as concern the Earth and other celestial bodies.

P6. Non-ambient conditions experiments for unraveling geological systems through mineral physics
F. Camara (UNIMI), P. Lotti (Elettra, Trieste)

The complexity of geological systems must be addressed from very different points of view. When it comes to deal with problems regarding the stability of mineral assemblages and in particular of mineral phases, the knowledge of mineral physics is extremely helpful to obtain valuable information that can help to gain a better understanding of the processes that drove to the mineral formation and its relative stability. Starting from a very broad field of competences, this session aims to focus on experimental setups that allow to perform experiments at temperatures and/or pressures far from the ambient conditions, as well as to the related results, comprehensive of a large deal of techniques. Experiments regarding just the synthesis of geomaterials are not meant to be covered, unless the synthesis is a prerequisite for the characterization of the material on study. Therefore, any kind of contribution from experimental settings, including spectroscopic and diffractometric techniques, aimed to solve geological problems are welcome.

P7. Advances in fundamental understanding of structure, properties and uses of ordered porous materials
A. Martucci (UNIFE), G. Cruciani (UNIFE)

This session will cover topics such as synthesis, structure determination, characterization, modelling, sorption in the use porous solids with ordered structures (zeolites, clay minerals, and assemblies of oxide nanoparticles). The goal is to provide a platform for scientists to discuss innovative aspects in their processing and applications, in new sustainable technologies, as well as in separation processes, microelectronics, membranes, sensors and optical functions.

P8. New minerals, systematic mineralogy, crystal chemistry, new mineralogical localities
M.E. Ciriotti (AMI), C. Biagioni (UNIPI)

The session welcomes contributions in the following topics: systematic mineralogy; classification of minerals and mineral groups, with special attention to new mineral species; crystal structure of minerals, with special attention to new and unusual topologies, and mineralogical crystal-chemistry; regional mineralogy (important old and new mineral localities, fascinating history of mining and mineralogy).

P9. Naturally occurring asbestos: state of the art and strategies for investigation and management
R. Punturo (UNICT), A. Bloise (UNICAL), E. Belluso (UNITO), C. Vaccaro (UNIFE)

The proposed session will focus on natural occurrences of asbestos (and asbestiform) minerals as a source of possible environmental risks for population. Attention will be paid on the state of the art about the rock story from natural outcrops to the quarry products as building materials, with implications due to airborne mineral fibres. Moreover, novel and classical approaches for asbestos outcrop mapping and monitoring, together with possible solutions for reducing asbestos exposure are welcome.

P10. Archaeometry and cultural heritage: the contribution of geosciences
G. Barone (UNICT), G. Balassone (UNINA), R. Giustetto (UNITO), L. Maritan (UNIPD)

Archaeometry can be regarded as a disciplinary field at the crossroad of different scientific disciplines, among which Earth sciences play a strategic and important role. This session will focus on the application of geosciences and in particular of mineralogy, petrography, geochemistry and geophysics, for the study of ancient findings (ceramics, glass, gems, lithic artifacts, plasters, pigments and metals) and structures, such as archeological sites and historic buildings. The session will mainly involve the characterization and definition of production/construction techniques, problems related to the provenance as well as to the diagnostic of the conservation state, restoration and maintenance of both artifacts and buildings. Selected articles will be published in a special issue of "Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry" indexed in SCOPUS.

P11. Sustainability and circular economy in the production of concrete and cementitious binders
L. Valentini (UNIPD), A. Zucchini (UNIPG), C. Leonelli (UNIMORE)

Minimizing the environmental footprint associated with industrial processes is one of the fundamental technological challenges for a sustainable future. The paradigm shift towards a "circular economy" implies a conversion of waste deriving from productive processes into new raw materials. This scientific session welcomes contributions related to the manufacturing and mineralogical characterization of concrete and cementitious binders, obtained either from waste and by-products or from alternative productive processes, aimed at minimizing carbon dioxide emissions and overall impact on the environment.

P12. Geomaterials and their likes: from Nature to technology and manufacturing
M. Mercurio (UNISANNIO), G. Eramo (UNIBA), C. Zanelli (ISTEC-CNR, Faenza), A.F. Gualtieri (UNIMORE)

This session will focus on the occurrence, properties and applications of geomaterials and their synthetic counterparts. In particular, contributes dealing with sustainable uses of raw materials, properties of building materials, ceramics, microporous and mesoporous compounds, geopolymers, nanomaterials and their applications, waste disposal materials for inertization processes, (re)use and control of nanoporous/glassy/fibrous materials, studies on anthroposphere mining at all scales and levels, and news from the forensic mineralogy are welcome.

P13. Mineral and biosphere interfaces: focus on environmental processes
G. De Giudici (UNICA), L. Gaggero (UNIGE), V. Rimondi (UNIFI), V. Funari (UNIBO)

Chemical reactions occurring at the interface between minerals and other media, including the mineral-biosphere interface, often control the mobility of bulk and trace elements and drive mineral precipitation. This is due to processes ranging from the molecular scale to the macro scale, that may involve living organisms, organic molecules released to the environment, microbes, fluids and (bio)minerals. This session solicits contributions that involve mineralogy to comprehend element mobility and that explore the interactions between the environment and minerals from the nanometer to the field scale, including natural and engineered materials. Contributions on identification and characterization of metal recovery, mineral upgrading, leaching/bioleaching, environmental impact assessment, sampling and analytical protocols, market analysis and new business models for Industry are welcome.

P14. Elements at the edge of life: minerals and mineralization processes in present and past organisms
A. Collareta (UNIPI), K. Gariboldi (UNIPI / UNIMIB), A. Gioncada (UNIPI), G. Bosio (UNIMIB), G. Bianucci (UNIPI)

This session aims to involve researchers from different backgrounds on the strongly interrelated subjects of fossilization, biomineralization, and biomaterials. Current research on inorganic phases in living and fossil organisms is indeed able to shed light on a plethora of pioneering topics in geosciences: from foundational investigations on the origin of life on Earth and beyond to the development of new visionary technologies in the field of tissutal engineering.

P15. Modern and fossil oceanic lithosphere revisited: from field to laboratory
L. Pandolfi (UNIPI), E. Saccani (UNIFE), E. Piluso (UNICAL)

The oceanic lithosphere represents a fundamental tool of the reconstruction of the geodynamics in many tectonic settings worldwide. The fossil oceanic lithosphere, i.e. the ophiolites, can be found in different tectonic positions within orogenic belts. The ophiolites also show a very contrasting geochemical evolution and, consequently, their mechanisms of emplacement are very different, and can be either related to subduction and subsequent continent-continent collision or to obduction. A comparison with the modern examples of oceanic lithosphere can improve the interpretation of the ophiolites. This session is addressed to collect recent multidisciplinary advances on the ophiolites and to discuss modern examples that might be the birthplace of the fossil oceanic lithosphere.

P16. A promenade along the subduction plate interface from the sea to the mantle and back: a multidisciplinary point of view
F. Meneghini (UNIPI), F. Remitti (UNIMORE), L. Federico (UNIGE)

The subduction plate interface is continuously shaped by mass and fluid transport along and across it, in an ever increasing pressure-temperature-strain regime, that influence crucially the seismicity, magmatism, and element re-distribution along convergent margins. The session aims to put toghether contributions dealing with fossil or active subduction zones and integrating results from structural geology, petrology/geochemistry, and modelling, in an attempt to decipher the processes active along the subduction plate interface from the surface down to ca. 100 km.

P17. Deformation and fluid flow in the crust from migmatites to epithermal systems
G. Musumeci (UNIPI), F. Mazzarini (INGV, Pisa), G. Viola (UNIBO), P. Garofalo (UNIBO)

This section welcomes contributions from the following topics: fluid segregation and transport (porous flow vs. channelized flow); mechanical and chemical interaction with host rocks; tectonic control on fluid flow and feedback relations; element mobilization and deposition; natural examples and numerical/analog models.

P18. Sediment generation and provenance in modern and ancient geodynamic settings
A. Resentini (UNIMIB), G. Vezzoli (UNIMIB), L. Caracciolo (Univ. Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany)

The last years have seen a greatly renewed interest in the analysis of sediment provenance, spurred by an expanding range of available technologies able to quantify sediment properties (e.g., petrographic, mineralogical, chemical and isotopic signatures, size and shape of grains, density distributions, age spectra) and necessary to unravel the lithological and time structures of source rocks. The construction of large multimethod datasets represents a fundamental pre-requisite to extract paleotectonic and paleoclimatic information from the stratigraphic record, to refine provenance diagnoses, and to reconstruct source-to-sink sediment dispersal systems, particularly useful in reservoir quality assessment. The ability to trace sediments to their sources is essential to evaluate the processes of mass transfer at various timescales and over large distances at the Earth's surface, and to extend our knowledge on the dynamics of our planet. The partitioning of the sediment flux into specific sources allows us to quantify rates of surface processes in modern settings and to draw inferences in ancient cases where source areas have been destroyed by tectonic deformation and erosion. The session is intended to (i) share recent developments in techniques and concepts, and (ii) discuss case studies from modern and ancient environments.

P19. Geodynamic systems from western Mediterranean to Himalaya: a natural laboratory for a multidisciplinary approach
F. Berra (UNIMI), S. Tavani (UNINA), A. Zanetti (IGG-CNR, Pavia)

The orogenic belts of different ages that characterize the area running from western Mediterranean to Himalaya represents one of the world's largest natural laboratory where a multidisciplinary approach can be applied in order to reconstruct the evolution of several geodynamics systems active from Paleozoic to Neogene. This session aims to present new achievements derived from different approaches and discuss the geodynamic processes from different point of view.

P20. Integrating multiple techniques to constrain the evolution of basement geology
C. Montomoli (UNIPI), E. Fazio (UNICT), S. Iaccarino (UNIPI), I.M. Villa (UNIMIB / Univ. Bern, Switzerland)

The unravelling of the tectono-metamorphic evolution of crystalline basement complexes has been one of the most fascinating and intriguing issues for generations of geologists, starting from the pioneering studies carried out on mountain belts such as the Alps, the Scottish Highlands, and the Himalaya. Different techniques were developed over the centuries to decipher and constrain this evolution. The achieved progress has made it clear that only a holistic approach based on the integration of various techniques can allow further progress in understanding the multifaceted geological processes. Detailed structural-geological field mapping integrated with meso- and micro-structural investigations, geochronology, petrologic modeling of metamorphic assemblages and petrofabric analysis are fundamental tools to infer helpful information to reconstruct a robust and accurate P-T-A-X-d-t path of crystalline rocks. For this session we invite basement geology contributions dealing with the integration of several techniques based on a strong structural analysis basis.

P21. Geochronology and geochemistry of accessory minerals: timing of petrogenetic processes and deformation
D. Lo Pò (UNIBO), A. Langone (IGG-CNR, Pavia), L. Casini (UNISS), M. Maino (UNIPV)

The use of the U-Th-Pb systematics in the study of continental crust started at the beginning of the 20th Century as a tool to measure the timescales of geological events. Then, the investigation of the U-Th-Pb system and other trace elements in accessory minerals (e.g. zircon, monazite, rutile) resulted to provide also geochemical information useful for petrogenetic studies. Geochronology and trace element characterization (petro-chronology) as well as thermochronology, have been repeatedly enhanced in the last years, improving our ability of constraining the evolution of the continental crust. This session aims to gather contributions dealing with accessory minerals, discussing the potentialities and limits of the U-Th-Pb geochronology, thermochronology and trace-element geochemistry in the study of the continental crust.

P22. Astenosphere melting and melt/rock interplay from rifting to subduction
D. Brunelli (UNIMORE), A. Sanfilippo (UNIPV)

This session focuses on mantle processes leading to magma generation, extraction and migration through (and emplacement within) the lithosphere. We aim at exploring the nature and implications of an heterogeneous mantle source from a petrological, geochemical and thermodynamical point of view. We expect contributions favouring discussions on melting a composite source, origin, size and distribution of inherited heterogeneities, mantle modifications induced by melt or fluid infiltration, melt extraction and role of mantle processes on the chemical variability of erupted melts. Case studies based on mantle derived rocks, intrusives along with erupted magmas as well as numerical, geochemical and petrological modelling are welcome. We solicit contributions from riftings, oceanic ridges, (supra-) subduction settings and their ophiolitic counterparts.

P23. Computational geochemistry and mineral sciences: new developments and future directions
D. Belmonte (UNIGE), M. Prencipe (UNITO)

Computational modelling is successfully applied to an outstanding variety of geochemical and mineralogical problems from the Earth's core to the crust. Theoretical and numerical simulations provide an independent way to understand chemico-physical processes and extend their investigation into pressure and temperature ranges inaccessible in the laboratory. The aim of this session is to bring together the most recent computational advances (from atomistic to multi-scale modelling, first principles and classical methods, data assessment and visualization, etc.) with particular focus on thermodynamic properties of solids, glasses and melts, elasticity, vibrational spectra, solid-state phase transitions, phase diagrams and melting. More general contributions based on numerical simulations in systems of broad geochemical and mineralogical interest are also welcome.

P24. Natural and model systems to unravel the volatiles cycle in the deep earth
N. Malaspina (UNIMIB), S. Tumiati (UNIMI)

Volatile elements (hydrogen, carbon, sulphur, nitrogen, noble gases, halogens) play a key role in many Earth processes such as genesis of magmas, transport and recycling of major and trace elements, mantle metasomatism, redox processes, and in the rheological and other physical properties of the mantle. Investigation of natural and model systems can provide constraints on processes of devolatilisation and fluid/rock interactions occurring in the deep Earth. We encourage contributions which cover all aspects of the deep cycling of volatiles, from subduction zones to the deep mantle, using experimental, field-based or computational approaches.

P25. Environmental geochemistry: innovative methods and techniques for the characterization of soils and water
G. Armiento (ENEA, Roma), M. Vetuschi Zuccolini (UNIGE)

Land characterization is a strategic objective for a proper and sustainable management. For a cost-effective characterization, the development of a new scientific approach and of innovative techniques, able to provide reliable and real-time data, are needed, ranging from rapid in field screening techniques to high-resolution characterization. Moreover, as contaminants toxicity studies improve, there is growing concern about low concentrations association with adverse effects on health and the environment. The session deals with measuring and monitoring innovative approaches used to detect and model the concentration, speciation, mobility and bioaccessibility of potentially harmful elements and substances (PHESs).

P26. Natural background concentrations: definition and implication in land management
G. Armiento (ENEA, Roma), M. Vetuschi Zuccolini (UNIGE)

The rocks, soils, sediments and waters forming the earth's surface play critical roles as sources, sinks and reactive media for trace elements. Almost all elements present in the environment are biogeochemically cycled and the primary control on their distribution is exerted by the nature of the underlying rocks. Geochemical background concentrations of potentially harmful elements may have a high spatial variability and their natural levels can be higher than those caused by anthropogenic sources of pollution. A role of the environmental geochemistry is to provide tools for the definition, evaluation and control of anomalous background concentrations and the production of geochemical maps to be used as reference for remediation actions and for general management purposes.

P27. Geochemistry and isotope-geochemistry in food traceability: state of the art and new perspectives
A. Marchetti (UNIMORE), S. Conticelli (UNIFI), R. Petrini (UNIPI)

The traceability of foods has become a priority among consumers, driven by the increasing demand for food quality and safety. In the traceability system, the discrimination of the geographical provenance of food products is essential to verify the claims of origin often declared on labels. For these purposes, a variety of analytical techniques are available, including multi-element, multi-isotope analysis and biochemical and molecular methods. The session is focused on these topics.

P28. Emerging pollutants in the environment: a challenge for geochemistry and isotope-geochemistry
S. Albanese (UNINA), D. Varrica (UNIPA)

In the last few decades the geochemical prospection has become a powerful tool for environmental surveys. One of the main roles of environmental geochemistry is, in fact, to identify new appropriate methodologies for detecting levels and sources of anomalous concentrations of toxic and harmful elements and substances in different environmental matrices. A variety of micropollutants have been recently identified, such as organic arsenic in foods, as well as organic micropollutants in products for the care and personal hygiene (e.g., EDCs: endocrine disrupting compounds). Both of them are released in significant amounts in municipal wastewaters, because wastewater treatment plants not always have specific treatment for their removal. In this context, different isotopes of some chemical elements constitute an important potential investigative tool because they allow to highlight chemical aspects that cannot be detected by the sole determination of absolute elemental concentrations. Aim of this session is to deal with the latest developments in researches related to Environmental Geochemistry.

P29. Geological carbon cycle
C. Cardellini (UNIPG), G. Chiodini (INGV, Napoli), M.L. Frezzotti (UNIMIB)

A better quantification of the carbon fluxes between solid Earth and Earth's atmosphere is necessary for modelling both the present day global carbon cycle and the carbon cycle over geological times. The geologic component of the carbon cycle operates slowly in comparison to the other parts of the global carbon cycle but, on time scales >0.1 Ma, it is one of the most important factors controlling the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and global temperature variations. Most of Earth's carbon is hidden deep within the planet but we do not know the extent of the main deep reservoirs and the rates to which carbon moves from one deep repository to another. Furthermore the mechanisms of transport and release of carbon into and from the solid Earth are still poorly characterized. A multidisciplinary approach, including geochemical, geophysical and petrological models, is requested in order to understand how deep processes modulate/determine the dynamics of the long term carbon cycle reducing the uncertainty on the estimates of the present day global budget of carbon emitted from geologic sources, that represents a starting parameter both for the climate prediction models and for the paleoclimatic models.

P30. Organic geochemistry: from biochemistry to the petroleum- coal- environmental- and soil-geochemistry. The new frontiers
F. Tassi (UNIFI), W. D'Alessandro (INGV, Palermo)

The behaviour of organic compounds in natural environment has a fundamental importance for geochemical, environmental, geothermal, volcanological studies, as well as for different branches of Life Sciences. In the hydrosphere and the atmosphere, this huge family of compounds is involved in a number of physicochemical and biological processes, whose investigation requires an intense collaboration and interchange of experiences concerning different scientific disciplines. The session deals with monitoring activities and innovative approaches for topics regarding the origin, the environmental impact, and the processes regulating the distribution of organic compounds in systems affected by anthropogenic activity and emissions of neogenic fluids, with a particular attention for the quality of air, waters and soils.

P31. Fluid geochemistry in geothermal, volcanic and seismically active areas
O. Vaselli (UNIFI), G. Chiodini (INGV, Napoli)

Fluids naturally move within the continental crust at such a rate to make them among the best candidates to provide almost instantaneous information on the prevailing condition at depth. While the systematic procedures of geochemical monitoring of gas and waters in active volcanic areas have revealed being useful on providing information about the ongoing phenomena in active volcanic systems, the possibility of using the same approach for seismicity is still matter of an intense debate in the scientific community. In this session we encourage contributions devoted to: i) geochemical characterization of hydrothermal gas and water discharges, ii) gas flux measurements, iii) soil gas investigations, and iv) geochemical modeling and statistical processing of temporal series in those systems potentially subjected to seismic and volcanic events.

P32. Melts, minerals and volatiles: who controls what in magmatic and volcanic processes
R. Moretti (UNINA2), G. Iezzi (UNICH), S. Mollo (UNIROMA1)

Magmatic and volcanic processes are about mass and energy exchanges in a multiphase system that are "complicated" by transport issues at different temporal and spatial scales. Observational, experimental and theoretical investigations differently contribute to our thermodynamic, kinetic and rheological understanding of magmatic systems by yielding insights into pressure-temperature-composition relationships, as well as timescales of occurring processes. However, the accessibility to magmatic systems is almost nothing, limited to small parcels of the system, such that the geochemical and petrologic reconstruction of magmatic system variables and processes is necessarily entrusted to the "a posteriori" elaboration and interpretation of specific datasets. This results a) in the lack of many boundary conditions and in assumptions about phase proportions (e.g., melt/gas ratio) and composition, pressure, temperature, redox state, magma ascent rate, et cetera, and b) does not allow an appropriate discrimination between equilibrium and disequilibrium issues, nor the identification of factors that control the whole process by imposing the chemical potential, or buffering the thermal state, or representing the rate determining step. This holds particularly true in case of volcanic processes, especially explosive ones, and limits our ability to link signals monitored at surface with subterranean processes generating them. In this session, we aim at gathering together researchers who enthusiastically want to "tear down phase boundaries" and move a step forward to understand "who controls what" in magmatic and volcanic processes. Topics of interest are about (but not limited to) thermodynamics and phase equilibria, kinetics, nucleation, crystal growth, element partitioning, degassing, fluxing, isotopic exchange, rheology, crystal structure control, redox state, microanalysis.

P33. Modeling volcanic processes by bridging disciplines
E. Marchetti (UNIFI), S. Scollo (INGV, CataniaCT), G. Tamburello (IPGP, Paris / UNIPA), M. Pistolesi (UNIFI)

Volcanic eruptions show a wide range of variability, from highly explosive to mild effusive activity. Several physical factors control the type of observed dynamism occurring at volcanoes. These factors result in variable processes, which can be studied and quantified prior, during and after the eruptive event. Geochemistry and geophysical investigations (gas, seismic, infrasound, thermal and deformation datasets) can give insights into the processes occurring immediately prior or during the eruptions. Field data (stratigraphy, sedimentation mechanisms and investigation of the erupted material) can help in understanding the eruption process and the fragmentation mechanisms. We invite contributions that address all this kind of observations coming from different disciplines, particularly those that touch upon linkages among geophysics, geochemistry, sedimentology, and tephra studies and which allow reliable interpretations linking processes, deposits, magma degassing and fragmentation and the integration of datasets with models.

P34. Magma chamber and eruptive dynamics resolved by natural and experimental evidences
M. Masotta (UNIPI), A. Vona (UNIROMA3), D. Di Genova (Univ. Bristol, UK), P. Giacomoni (UNIFE), D. Morgavi (UNIPG)

Chemistry, mineralogy and textures of igneous rocks provide records of magma chamber and eruptive processes that operate at different spatial and temporal scales. The quantitative investigation of deep processes such as crystallization, crustal assimilation and magma mixing relies on the truthful characterization of the chemical environment and of the intensive variables (e.g., temperature, pressure, oxygen fugacity) at which each process takes place. At the same time, during magma transport, the timescale of thermodynamic equilibrium processes can be longer than ascent times. As a consequence, disequilibrium conditions may strongly affect degassing, syn-eruptive crystallization and thus magma rheology and eventually fragmentation. On this basis, a deep understanding of these complex processes is possible through: (i) integrated petrographic and chemical analyses of natural products, (ii) experimental parametrization of magmatic variables, as well as experimental determination of magma physical properties, crystallization and degassing kinetics, (iii) numerical and thermodynamic modelling of the processes that control magma evolution and transport to the surface. In this view, we welcome innovative and multidisciplinary contributions from experimental petrology, volcanology and geochemistry that use these approaches to unravel magma chamber and eruptive processes and their timescales.

P35. Basaltic explosive volcanism: magma ascent, degassing and eruptive dynamics
R.A. Corsaro (INGV, Roma), A. Bertagnini (INGV, Pisa), M. Ripepe (UNIFI)

Basaltic explosive volcanism includes a range of activity, from Strombolian explosions, to lava fountains, to sub-Plinian and uncommon Plinian eruptions, characterized by different timescales and intensity. The aim of the session is to highlight the pre- and syn-eruptive magmatic processes in order to investigate the dynamics of explosive eruptions in basaltic systems. We propose a multidisciplinary session aimed at discussing about degassing, differentiation and fragmentation of magma in shallow reservoirs and/or in the conduit region, geophysical signals associated to explosive eruptions, as well as possible interaction between explosive activity and tectonic processes. To address the topic, contributions based on field measurements, laboratory data, and numerical models are encouraged.

P36. Volcanic ash
R. Cioni (UNIFI), M. Pistolesi (UNIFI), D. Perugini (UNIPG)

Ash production and dispersal often dominate the dynamics of small- to intermediate intensity eruptions, as clearly demonstrated by the direct observation of recent volcanic crises. Despite the size, ash fragments can efficiently record the main syn-eruptive processes, as magma degassing and outgassing, microlite crystallization, fragmentation, recycling, ash surface alteration, aggregation. The session is dedicated to discuss the results of different studies dedicated to ash generation, dispersal, sedimentation and environmental impact using geochemical, textural, geophysical and modeling data.

P37. Central Mediterranean tephrostratigraphy: current status, problems, future perspectives
P. Del Carlo (INGV, Pisa), A. Di Roberto (INGV, Pisa), P. Donato UNICAL), R. Sulpizio (UNIBA)

Tephrochronologic studies are particularly relevant for the central Mediterranean region. In this area, since the Quaternary many volcanic centers have been active often characterized by a strong explosive activity. After the first pioneering works developed in the 1970-1980 period, recently tephrochronologic studies have found lifeblood due to the necessity of high-resolution dating for paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental reconstructions. At the same time, the focus of other projects has been the improvement of the volcanological knowledge by studying distal and proximal deposits in order to refine the chronology of the eruptions. Despite the significant amount of new data and interpretations provided by these studies, further efforts in the research is needed to delineate a complete tephrostratigraphic framework for the Central Mediterranean and to solve some of the still existing problems such as: i) the lack of knowledge of the proximal deposits for some volcanic areas which prevents the correlation with the equivalent distal tephra; ii) the lack of a unique protocol of analysis defining the "best practices" for the characterization of tephra (morphological, textural and components, petrographic and compositional study of mineral phases, geochemistry of major and trace elements, dating, etc.); iii) areas where tephrostratigraphic studies are absent or limited. The focus of this session will be to discuss these questions, starting from the current knowledge and proposing possible solutions in the light of methodological and analytical innovations.

P38. Mapping geological structures and volcanic phenomena for hazard assessment: traditional and innovative approaches
M. Bisson (INGV, Pisa), S. Calvari (INGV, Catania), R. Isaia (INGV, Napoli), A. Neri (INGV, Pisa), C. Spinetti (INGV, Roma)

Maps represent one of best instruments to synthetize the geo-volcanological data. These could include geological information at different scales such as represent the products of the modeling and/or probabilistic estimates of specific volcanic phenomena. Moreover, the use of thematic maps is an important tool to divulgate information to the general public. The session mainly aims to discuss studies based on both traditional and innovative approaches for mapping and developing instruments (databases, models, etc.) useful for the hazard evaluation associated to different volcanic phenomena (lava flow, tephra fallout, pyroclastic density currents, lahar, etc.). We encourage all contributions that may show cases useful to favour a broad discussion on issues related to the production of maps for volcanic areas, with particular emphasis for studies using innovative techniques for both the acquisition and mapping of the data, and for the implementation of hazard models tacking into account the data uncertainty estimation.

La sottomissione degli abstract per il congresso 2017 avverrà tramite l’accesso al Pannello Utente.

Per accedere al Pannello Utente è necessario compilare la scheda di registrazione accedendo al menu "Registrazione" che sarà attivo a partire da Marzo.

Per l'inserimento dell’abstract, si devono compilare i campi di immissione: nel primo campo va indicato il Titolo e quindi, nell’apposito campo, gli autori del contributo come “Cognome Nome puntato” (Es. Rossi G.). Gli autori dovranno essere separati da una virgola e contraddistinti da un numero per l’individuazione della struttura di appartenenza. Nei tre campi successivi andranno riportate le strutture di appartenenza degli autori (senza indirizzo postale), va scelta la “Sessione” tramite il relativo menù a tendina e vanno inserite le key-words. L’abstract, redatto in lingua INGLESE, e gli eventuali riferimenti bibliografici per esteso dovranno essere inseriti nell’apposito modulo con un massimo di 3000 caratteri (spazi inclusi). I riassunti dovranno essere composti di solo testo, senza tabelle né figure. Nell’ambito del testo è vietato l’uso di note a piè di pagina. Le citazioni bibliografiche (anche esse incluse nei 3000 caratteri) nel testo vanno indicate fra parentesi tonde: cognome dell’autore, virgola, anno di edizione. Più lavori citati in serie devono essere in ordine cronologico e separati da punto e virgola (Ramsay & Huber, 1987; Hobbs et al., 1990).
La lista della letteratura citata deve essere in ordine alfabetico e deve includere tutti, e solo, i riferimenti bibliografici menzionati nel testo. Possono essere fatti riferimenti a lavori accettati ed effettivamente in corso di stampa su riviste, delle quali sia menzionato il nome ed il volume, e a tesi di laurea e di dottorato.

Non sono ammesse citazioni di lavori in corso di preparazione o in fase di approvazione per la stampa. La lista dei riferimenti bibliografici deve essere compilata in ordine alfabetico sul nome del primo (o unico) Autore, del secondo Autore, del terzo, ecc. Più articoli dello stesso Autore/i pubblicati nello stesso anno vanno indicati con lettere minuscole dopo la data (a, b,...n). Gli Autori sono indicati col Cognome, seguito dall’iniziale del Nome e da un punto; nel caso di più Autori i loro nomi sono separati da una virgola e l’ultimo Autore è preceduto dal segno &. Dopo l’iniziale del Nome dell’ultimo (o unico) Autore, la data di edizione, seguita da un punto e quindi dal titolo del lavoro in romano (tondo). Dopo un punto, il nome del periodico in romano (tondo), riportato secondo le consuete abbreviazioni, seguito dal numero del volume, dalla pagina iniziale e la pagina finale del lavoro in riferimento indicate con le sole cifre (esempio: 457-632). Tutti questi numeri vanno separati da virgole e chiusi da un punto finale. Le formule matematiche, qualora non riconosciute dal sistema, potranno esser inviate alla segreteria come file immagine (.jpg). Il testo può essere inserito anche tramite copia da un editore esterno, in questo caso si consiglia di controllare il risultato finale, facendo particolare attenzione alla presenza di lettere accentate.
Una volta cliccato il tasto “Invia”, l'abstract sarà inviato alla segreteria del congresso per la successiva valutazione da parte dei convener della sessione di riferimento. Contestualmente sarà recapitata all’autore una mail con il riepilogo dei dati inseriti e un codice lavoro necessario per apportare eventuali modifiche.
