high-resolution aeromagnetic data recently acquired in the Western Procida offshore. The investigated area is located
along the ridge connecting Ischia to the Phlegrean Fields and is characterized by the existence of several
monogenetic volcanoes aligned on a NE-SW system of faults. The high-resolution magnetic data yielded new
information on the area, highlighting particularly the signature of a volcanic body located between Pt. Serra and
the Ruommoli shoal. This structure has not been clearly described before and we named it as the Pt. Serra submarine
volcano. The computation of the analytic signal and horizontal gradient of the data distinctly located this
structure and definined the position of its rims. A 2D modeling and 3D inversion of data provided information
on the volcanos thickness, width and magnetization, disclosing a meaningful igneous body extending down to
several hundred meters b.s.l.
