Data sets

Measurements of deformation in fractured volcanic tuffs, Coroglio coastal cliff, Naples, Italy F. Matano, M. Caccavale, and M. Sacchi

Continuous meteorological monitoring at Cape Posillipo (Denza Institute weather station - Naples - Campania Region - Italy) during the period January 2014 - December 2018 A. Fortelli, F. Matano, and M. Sacchi

Short summary
Along the coastline of the Phlegraean Fields, Naples, Italy, severe retreat processes affect the tuff coastal cliffs, causing hazardous slope failures. An integrated monitoring system coupled with a weather station has been active since 2014. The measurements allowed us to assess the magnitude and temporal pattern of rock block deformations before failure and their correlation with meteorological parameters. A close correlation between temperature and deformation trends has been recognized.
