"seismic analyses" - no indication of active/passive, reflection/refraction, etc. ---> "On the contrary, in areas with little or no volcanic activity, assumptions on the nature, size and characteristics of the source of the thermal anomaly are generally much more difficult and hypothetical. In these circumstances, some useful data can be obtained from accurate seismic analyses, together with a seismotectonic and geodynamic interpretation of all the available information such as historic seismic events, deep velocity of seismic waves, etc. Reasonable hypotheses can usually be formulated for the presence of active regional phenomena favoring the development of a heat anomaly, such as a mantle rise, presence of shallow magma chambers, wide acidic intrusions, regional deep faulting, etc."
