Research Topics
  • Surface spatial heterogeneity of geological substrata assessable by imagery analysis to define the complexity of geological features using the pattern distributions of morphological, brittle lineaments and lithological data
  • The analyses of meso/macro-scale brittle deformations elements, as faults, extensional or pressure-solution fractures, to define a potential gradient of water circulation related to the strain hardening and strain softening processes
  • Role of geological heterogeneity as water vehicle for surface and sub-surface circulation
  • Diffusion Rate of a water wehicolate pollutant linked to geological heterogeneity in 2D and 3D
  • Role of geological structures in planning management programmes of polluted areas
  • Water resources for sustainable development
Research activities / Ongoing Projects
  • PILOT PROJECT (SAMOBIS) Environmental estimation of marine coastal areas and the risk for biodiversity organization. Module II: monitoring of coastal and land disturbance, erosion and runoff
