The Mount Etna bibliography
The wealth of scientific publications dealing with Mount Etna is of incredible dimensions, and it is impossible to list them all here. Nonetheless many of those indicated will lead you to further publications, and I will update this list at irregular intervals. The most recent additions to the list are shown in bold face. If you are looking for books (monographs) about Etna, you will find them highlighted in red color. Publications dealing with the 2001 and 2002-2003 eruptions of Etna are highlighted in green color.
An extended review of the main references listed below (i.e. books, monographs) is available on a separate page. This is intended to provide further detail about these references and comment on their accuracy.
of the more recent entries do not simply give the authors, title, journal
title, volume, and page numbers. They end with a strange combination
of numbers of letters, which are the DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
The DOI serves to locate digital objects, which may be anything of intellectual
property, such as books, pieces of music, and articles, which are available
on-line and can be downloaded as files (e.g., the quite convenient pdf
format for text with images). For more detail visit the DOI
homepage. Concerning the application of the DOI when it comes to
searching for the on-line version of an article, the procedure is simple:
type "http://dx.doi.org/" in the address window of your web
browser, then digit the DOI of the article you are looking for behind
that, and hit return. Example: to get to the on-line version of one
of my recently published papers, the way is "http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0377-0273(03)00072-6".
I have made most DOI indications in the reference clickable, and in
the majority of cases, the DOI concept works.
Back to the Etna bibliography. The number of references about Etna is very large and increasing exponentially, so they are split up into several pages:
