Abstract: Deformation data collected at Mount Etna from 1993 to 1997 show that the inflation of the volcano edifice is accompanied by instability of the eastern flank. We propose a 3-D finite element model including topography and lateral variations of elastic constants. Source parameters of the inflating source are constrained by a direct search followed by an appraisal stage of the sampled solutions. The instability of the eastern flank is addressed using a kinematic approach, consisting of a rigid-body translation over a prescribed area. The aim is to evaluate how source parameters are affected by sliding of the eastern flank. When sliding is accounted for, the inferred source location shifts ∼1 km SE and its strength decreases by ∼20 per cent.
