Dr. Angelo Paone has graduated with a thesis in geology and geochemistry of the volcanic rocks of Pantelleria at Università degli Studi di Napoli “Federico II”. The work concerned the analyses of major and trace elements of the rhyolites and trachytes of Pantelleria. He also produced 14 C data from the paleosoil and charcoal dating some eruptive events in Pantelleria. Dr. Paone received a grant to visit the USGS in Reston, VA where he learned about all aspects of isotope geology and also acquired knowledge in stable isotope work (Oxygen and Boron). Dr. Paone got his PhD from the University of Naples, Italy, and during such time, he produced a full database for the volcanic rocks of Campania region (Somma-Vesuvius, Campi Flegrei, Roccamonfina, Ventotene, Ponza Island). He obtained a Marie Curie Fellowship at University of Bristol, England, and mainly worked on the interpretation modeling data and also producing some data on water, CO 2 and solubility data. Dr. Paone went for a post doc in Volcanology and petrology at University of Naples where he worked in solving some problems linked between the evolved composition of the magma erupted (Campanian Ignimbrites, Campanian Volcanic Subprovince) and their volume, trying to find a model that would have explained the presence of such abundance of material erupted in such area. He also used an exchange grant with the University of Bergen, Norway, and it was used to built a robust oxygen and carbon isotopes profile to investigate the microclimatic condition in the Holocene of Campania region.
