Abstract: Marsili and Palinuro volcanoes are the biggest seamounts of the Tyrrhenian Sea. They are interpreted as volcanic centers in a back-arc setting linked to the eastward retreat of the Ionian Slab during Pleistocene time. From 2006, this region was covered by two ship-borne geophysical surveys. High resolution magnetic and gravimetric data were acquired by using a Cesium magnetometer and the Lacoste & Romberg Air/Sea gravity system. During the two campaigns a total of 2300 km of magnetic track-lines and 1200 km of gravimetric track-lines were acquired. The magnetic and gravimetric pattern of the two seamounts provide information about the geodynamics of the region with particular implication to the Pleistocene evolution of the southern Tyrrhenian Sea.
