The Next Pompeii

Feb 20 2019

 

PBS NOVA - Tiziana Vanorio on volcanoes and rock physics (starts at 37:50)

In the shadow of Italy’s Vesuvius, a lesser-known volcano rumbles: Campi Flegrei. If it erupts, millions of lives could be at risk. Scientists explore its unique geology and develop a warning system that could prevent Naples becoming the next Pompeii.
