The Seismic lines Offshore Mount Etna (SOME) database is presented. It consists of multichannel high-resolution seismic data acquired in 2005 off-shore Mount Etna (eastern Sicily). We describe first the acquisition of seismic lines and then the architecture of the data base. Finally we describe a very basic interpretation of some seismic lines to provide clear example of the potentiality of the seismic data sets in addressing relevant issues such as the occurrence of slope instabilities and the deformation style of the continental margin off shore mount Etna.
