About this book

Central-Southern Italy and the Tyrrhenian Sea are the sites of extensive Plio-Quaternary magmatic activity. The rock compositions include crustal anatectic granites and rhyolites, tholeiitic, calc-alkaline, shoshonitic volcanics, and potassic to ultrapotassic and Na-alkaline volcanics. This very wide compositional variation makes Italian magmatism one of the most complex petrological issues, the understanding of which is a challenge for modern petrology and geochemistry. This book summarises the petrological, geochemical and volcanological characteristics of Italian Plio-Quaternary volcanism, and discusses petrogenetic hypotheses and possible geodynamics settings. The book is written for petrologists and geochemists, but fundamental geochemical information is well presented and the use of excessive jargon is avoided, making the book readable to a wide audience of Earth scientists. The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing a database of volcanic rock analyses compiled in the last two to three decades.

Media reviews

Aus den Rezensionen: "Angelo PECCERILLO beschaftigt sich in seinem Werk sehr ausfuhrlich mit dem pliozanen bis quartaren Magmatismus Italiens. ! Das Werk ! berucksichtigt als neueste Literatur Arbeiten aus dem Jahr 2005 und ist damit brandaktuell. ! Dieses Buch ist vor allem fur Geowissenschaftler jeder Art gedacht. Das Werk liest sich recht flussig, da der Autor weitestgehend auf extrem fachspezifische Begriffe verzichtete !" (C. SCHMITT-RIEGRAF, in: Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie Teil II, 2006, Issue 5-6, S. 732 ff.)
