SES Postdoctoral researcher Aurora Silleni was recently interviewed about her research on the Campanian Ignimbrite by Il Messaggero, an important newspaper in Rome. Her work has characterized the volume and distribution of ash and pumice from a huge eruption in the Campi Flegrei, outside Naples, Italy, at 39.8 Ma. It was the largest eruption in Europe in the past 200,000 years, depositing 10 cm of ash outside Moscow, Russia, 2500 km away. Her work is critical for understanding the magnitude and explosivity of this eruption. Dr. Silleni did her PhD research on this topic at Università di Roma Tre and is now doing a postdoctoral study at NAU with Dr. Michael Ort. Congrats for the great coverage of your work Aurora!
