Geocache Description:


Pietra Cannone

English

This Earthcache may not be visible in winter due to heavy snowfall!
When a tree is run over by a very fluid basaltic lava flow, a rock crust wraps around the tree. The tree will burn completely and the cylindric form of the lava rock is the only witness of the event. An imprint of the trunk in the form of a cylinder is all that remains like a kind of tunnel.
This phenemenon occurred many times in the Etna environment and is called "pietra-cannone" by inhabitants of villages located on Mount Etna.
Go to GPS coordinates and answer the questions below. Send the answers to me and I will give you permission to log:
1) What is the orientation roughly (North, South, West, East) of this Pietra Cannone?
2) What is the length roughly of this Pietra Cannone?
3) What is the diameter roughly of this Pietra Cannone?
If you like you can take a picture of yourself in front of the Pietra Cannone, if possible with your GPS.

Questa EarthCache potrebbe non essere visibile in inverno a causa di forti nevicate!
Se un albero viene colpito da un flusso basaltico lava molto fluida, allora l'albero è avvolto con questa colata. L'albero brucia completamente e la forma cilindrica della lava raffreddata è l'unico testimone dell'evento. Un'espressione della fusoliera in forma di un cilindro, tutto ciò come una sorta di tunnel rimane.
Questo fenomeno si è verificato molte volte nella zona dell'Etna e “pietra-cannone” dagli abitanti dei paesi etnei.
Vai alle coordinate GPS e rispondi alle seguenti domande:
1) Qual è l'orientamento circa di questo “pietra-cannone” (Nord, Sud, Ovest, Est)?
2) Qual è la lunghezza circa di questo “pietra-cannone”?
3) Qual è il diametro circa di questo “pietra-cannone”?

Wenn ein Baum von einem sehr flüssigen basaltischen Lavastrom getroffen wird, dann wird der Baum mit diesem Lavastrom gewickelt. Der Baum verbrennt vollständig und zylindrische Form des abgekühlten Lava ist der einzige Zeuge der Veranstaltung. Ein Ausdruck des Rumpfes in der Form eines Zylinders ist alles, was als eine Tunnel bleibt.
Dieses Phänomen trat viele Male in der Etna Bereich und "Pietra Cannone" von den Bewohnern der Dörfer Etna.
