This study describes advances in understanding of the recent evolution of the Ombrone River delta. Several aspects have been studied and updated: the stages of progradation and retreat of the shoreline from the Middle Ages, with particular reference to the last 200 years, have been reconstructed and the natural and/or human forcing responsible for the area’s evolution have been hypothesized. The processes that led to the formation and evolution of some small coastal lakes and the more recent evolution of

The assessment of erosive processes is of great importance in environmental engineering, resource management and land planning. In this paper the empirical approach known as Erosion Potential Method (EPM) was improved to simplify the identification of the involved parameters. In addition, EPM suitability for alpine watersheds, where the average yearly temperature may be below 0°C, was discussed. The advantages of distributed approaches rather than lumped methodologies were tested. EPM was then implemented

During the last decades many researches were carried out to highlight interactions between detached low-crested breakwaters and beach morphodynamics. However, up to now, the influence of grain size on beach morphodynamic response to a breakwater has been scantily considered. This study focused on Levanto gravel beach, partially protected by a low-crested breakwater: the beach was observed through a video monitoring system, with the aim of underlining its morphological variations in connection to wave charac

In the framework of landslide risk reduction, predicting the time of occurrence of a slope failure is a goal of major importance. However, the task is far from simple, since it is practically impossible to account for the large number of controlling variables and factors. For these reasons, an empirical and phenomenological approach is commonly employed in the time of slope failure prediction, given that it removes all the uncertainties involved. Based on the observation and interpretation of monitored dat

The Romans solved the problem of supplying water to the settlement corresponding to modern Frigento (910 m a.s.l.) and to the road connecting modern Mirabella Eclano to modern Conza della Campania by constructing a storage system consisting of a series of cisterns. The latter were excavated in Cretaceous Flysch galestrino with the least degree of relative permeability, lying -below a surface level of pyroclastic sandy soil up to 5 m thick with a medium degree of relative permeability. The volume of water th
