|Abstract: ||The aim of this work is to present geological evidence of liquefactions triggered by earthquakes in
eastern-Sicily and to analyze their characteristics. Liquefaction prone areas have been selected on the
basis of the historical observations and by using aerial photographs, geological maps and field
investigations.Though the difficulties caused by the intense human activity (urban settlement, industrial
development, fluvial regimentation etc.), field investigations allowed us to recognize evidence of
liquefaction at several sites in the eastern flank of Mt. Etna and in the Catania plain to the south, where
these phenomena are described by historical reports.
In two sites we analyzed in details artificial exposures showing evidences of liquefaction features in
the outcropping Holocene deposits: (1) the Minissale trench, in the Mascali area, and (2) the Agnone
trench, in the Catania plain both placed onto the Gela foredeep.|
