In order to highlight possible aquifer pollution phenomena and rising of a salt wedge in the Sant’Eufemia Plain (southern Italy), forty-two samples of rivers and groundwater were analyzed. The Sant’Eufemia plain is located in the middle-western Calabria and represents one of the main agricultural and industrial area of the region. Four main geochemical types have been identified (Na-Cl, Na-HCO3, Ca-HCO3 and Ca-SO4 waters). The low salinity of Na-Cl waters allowed to exclude sea water intrusion phenomena

Analysis of erosive processes and sediment transport in mountain environments has numerous implications for proper river basin management, land use planning as well as flood risk evaluation. Temporal and spatial scales of these phenomena may vary greatly during intense precipitation events with respect to normal conditions, thus introducing significant differences between long- and short-term related sediment yield and transport. In this work, the Erosion Potential Method is applied to Alpine catchments loc

Geological investigations aimed at mining prospecting are based on geological maps, field surveys and on underground data (geophysical survey, boreholes and/or mining tunnels). In mining activity (both raw material and energy supplies), it is important to define geologic features, such as geometries, volumes, mineral contents but also surface and subsurface evolution due to excavation and other mining facilities, such as tunnels, plants and other buildings and roads. There are many commercial software able

The phenomenon of “diving plumes” frequently occurs in some particular hydrogeological settings where the groundwater recharge flows into the top of a shallow water table aquifer and, once inside the aquifer, this water begins to move downwards. Due to the preferred horizontal flow path, it can push contaminant plumes downwards up to the deepest aquifers. Therefore, especially in urban areas, where the water table depression is more pronounced, the pollutants are conveyed to the most important groundwat

Nanoseismic monitoring is a passive geophysical technique used to identify and locate weak seismic events (down to local magnitudes, ML, around -3). This technique was applied in the open-pit quarry district of Coreno Ausonio (central Italy) to detect possible gravity-induced slope instabilities resulting from quarry rock blasting. After identifying an active quarry, an engineering-geological survey was carried out to characterise the jointed rock mass on an abandoned wall in front of the quarry. Four main
