Activities at Solfatara

Following the 2nd year Med-Suv Meeting in Naples, a field campaign was carried out in Solfatara. The campaign aimed at characterizing the subsoil in the crater along selected profiles (already used for other geophysical investigation within the Med-Suv framework) and at measuring rocks permeability in the areas showing high outgassing. Furthermore samples were collected based on the different alteration degree affecting the rocks in the area. The samples will be analysed to assess the effect of hydrothermal alteration on the mechanical properties as well as on porosity and permeability.
