Description of geological field trips
a) Mt. Amiata: geothermics and environmental problems relate to mercury anomalies.
b) Northern Tuscany and Eastern Liguria: environmental problems related to iron and manganese mines disposal. Ophiolites altered to serpentinites (chrysotile, asbestos).
c) Volcanic activity in central and southern Italy. Impact of volcanic activity on the environment, gas emissions and health risks, volcanic risk.
