Pozzolan is an incoherent to pseudo-coherent pyroclastic soil that is much diffused in the Phlegraean Fields and has been used since ancient times for cement making. The industrial and economic relevance of this geological material gives rise to quarrying activities distributed in the Phlegraean area, which are carried out by means of pit quarries. These issues stimulated engineering geological analyses of the quarry cut slopes discussed in this paper and aimed to develope advanced slope stability analyses.

A study aimed at developing remote sensing procedures capable of recognizing geomorphological features was carried out. Field work was consequently performed in order to test the reliability of the method in an area in the south-eastern Murge (Apulia, southern Italy) characterized by superficial and underground karst development. Aerial photography stereo pairs were used to map sinkholes while a computer-assisted procedure of multispectral image interpretation mapped superficial lineaments characterized by

In the paper the experiments on the quasi-determinism theory of the wave groups, introduced by Boccotti, are described both for the field of progressive and standing waves. These experiments have been carried out in the sea of Reggio Calabria that represents, for a combination of favorable environmental factors, a natural laboratory where some wind-generated waves occur, representing small scale models of strong Mediterranean and oceanic sea storms.

Monte Vulture is an extinct Quaternary volcano in Potenza Province (Basilicata Region), in southern Italy. The area is tectonically active, testified by earthquakes. The volcano consists prevalently of tuffs with subordinate lavas, overlying an impermeable Flysch formation. It has abundant groundwater with springs and aquifers containing water with low to high mineralization and in some cases sparkling water. The most common gas is carbon dioxide. Studies were carried out on the water of 24 springs and 21 w

In this paper, a platform for the continuous monitoring of an unstable slope, based on ground based SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) interferometry, is described. The landslide interacts closely with an important road where modernisation works have to be realised. A radar platform was designed to monitor all the stages of construction (before, during and after). The platform, which can operate continuously under any weather and lighting conditions, consists of the following sensors: i) ground-based interferom
