Notes on Vent Field Description: 
Heinicke et al. (2009): "continuous monitoring carried out between 2006 and 2007, coupled with the VLP seismicity recorded at the nearby Stromboli Island, and the helium isotopes recorded at both the islands, provide the indication that the modifications at the submarine venting fluids off Panarea are related to the seismic activity of Stromboli, thereby indicating that a common degassing source, probably made of magma intrusions along the N40°E fault, affects both volcanoes"; Carey et al. (2012): "small seamount south of Stromboli. … Previous dredging of Casoni Seamount recovered volcanic samples that were warm. No hydrothermal venting was discovered at Casoni..."
