GeoSEA array records sliding of Mount Etna's southeastern flank

The southeast flank of Mount Etna slowly slides toward the sea. A team of scientists from GEOMAR and the Kiel University have showed for the first time the movement of Etna's underwater flank using a new, sound-based geodetic monitoring network. A sudden and rapid descent of the entire slope could lead to a tsunami with disastrous effects for the entire region. The results have been published today in the international journal Science Advances.
