A two-dimensional numerical model for simulating water flood is presented. The model formulation employs a parabolic approximation for the shallow-water equations. The flow equations are solved by means of a numerical semi-implicit method based on mass balance applied to cells whose elevation is derived directly from topographic data survey described by DEM. Boundary conditions are described as prescribed level-discharge relations. A comparison with a physical imposed model and a real application of

In Autumn 2000, the Province of Pistoia, and in general the north-western Tuscany and the nortern Italy, was hit by heavy and nearly uninterrupted rainfall, which reached the maximum intensity on November 20th. The rainstorm of November 20th caused many effects, in particular in the municipal district of Pescia, where numerous landslides, mostly of first generation, were triggered. The most frequent type of movement of the landslides was the sliding rapidly developed in flow. The main cause of th

The problem of coastal erosion affects dramatically the Apulia region (Italy). For the last fifty years the coastal strip of Manfredonia Gulf has undergone an evident retreat due to human activities. In response to this retreat almost 300 coastal defense works have been built up. In this paper we summarize the recent evolution of Manfredonia Gulf coastline emphasizing the role of coastal defenses. Moreover a first attempt of ground laser scanner monitoring of the defenses is presented. Our conclu

The study of natural slope morphodynamics is an extremely complex subject. Aspects to be investigated range from lithological-structural setting, state and type of activity of landforms and processes, climate and related runoff water and groundwater circulation, to behaviour of the rock mass and/or soils involved, also in response to weathering processes. Numerous studies have been conducted on the interactions between weathering processes and their effects at rock mass and slope scales, in partic

The debris slides - debris flows represent both one of the most significant denudational processes in the pyroclastic soil-mantled car- bonate massifs that surround the Campanian Plain (Italy), and the main risk source for the towns located at the foot of their slopes, as is well known. The ash-fall deposits, mainly derived from the explosive activity of Mount Somma-Vesuvius, were varyingly distributed among the carbonate mountain ranges that surround the Plain, according to the dispersion axes of
