Campi Flegrei del Mar di Sicilia (Phlegraean Fields of the Sicily Sea) is a group of submarine volcanoes off the coast of Sicily. Submarine banks rise from a 1000-m-deep depression between Sicily and Tunisia to near sea level. Submarine eruptions have been recorded since the 3rd century BCE, including some that built ephemeral islands, such as this one at Graham Island (Giulia Ferdinandeo), in 1831.
