Palinuro volcano is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, 80 km NNW of Stromboli. It is situated on the lower continental slope of Calabria. Palinuro undersea volcano contains a horshoe-shaped sumit caldera.
Palinuro seamount is 55 x 20 km in diameter, elongated east-west and has a height of 1500 m.
The age and petrochemistry of the volcano are similar to those of the Aeolian island arc volcanoes. The summit of Palinuro volcano is associated with a complex magnetic field, which possible indicates structural inhomogeneities.
