This paper discusses the early results of a study carried out in the Oltrepò Pavese plain sector (Southern Lombardy, Italy) where the uprising of deep, mineralized waters into the shallow aquifer, occurs. These waters are characterized by a Na-Cl hydrochemical facies. Monitoring of the chemistry of the waters, by periodical sampling, was carried out both on wells and on the lower reaches of the surface water drainage network which are characterized by high chloride concentrations. This permitted the

Results of groundwater monitoring in the Rio Cixerri plain, envisaged by Sardinia’s Water Protection Plan, revealed high nitrate content. The presence of nitrates in groundwater bodies can be attributed chiefly to the use of mineral and organic fertilizers, municipal and industrial wastewater discharges, sewer leakage and cesspit sewage disposal. In order to assess the potential risk for groundwater contamination we used the SINTACS method for evaluating intrinsic vulnerability, supplemented with the haz

In urbanized areas rainfall-induced landslides very often expose the population to serious risk and their occurrence can cause considerable economic losses. Because of its peculiar geological, geomorphological and climatic conditions the Genoese area, frequently affected by heavy intensity rainfall events, presents a very high susceptibility to floods and rainfall induced shallow landslides. The aim of this paper is to define the rainfall thresholds for triggering shallow landslides for a portion of the Ge

Our study covered the sector of the Campanian Plain between the River Volturno and Mt. Massico. The hydrogeological system was defined in detail by analysing data from over 400 borehole stratigraphies and more than 100 piezometric surveys. The plain’s main aquifer was identified in the pyroclastic/sedimentary material underlying rather impermeable Campanian Ignimbrite, occurring with variable thicknesses. Piezometric and hydrochemical data allowed us to identify the areas, at the edge of the plain, where

This paper describes the differences between the phreatic aquifer and the deep confi ned aquifers in the territory of Lodi Province (Northern Italy), derived by the reconstruction of the hydrogeological structure of the subsoil and with the aid of hydrochemical and isotopic techniques. Firstly, the presence of a substrate with a marine origin near to the topographic surface influences the chemical characteristics of groundwater in some parts of the territory. Secondly, the distribution of the most import

In order to improve the knowledge on the deep groundwater resources of the diffusely exploited multilayered aquifer system of the Low Friuli Plain (BPF) (Northern Italy), water samples coming from 37 wells, 17 springs and 4 rivers have been collected and analysed in 2007. The main anions and cations’ concentrations (with a particular interest in sulphate and strontium contents, natural tracers of Tagliamento River’s waters), the geochemical facies and the correlations between the main elements have bee

This note describes the rockfall processes involving some coastal cliffs with moderate lengths (30-50 m) and elevations (4-5 m), constituted by alternating loose sediments and cemented levels (calcareous breccias) dating to Upper Pleistocene and widespread along the western coast of Lussino/Lošinj Island (eastern Adriatic Sea, Croatia). The rockfall phenomena are due to the collapse of thick layers (20-70 cm, essentially) made of angular matrix-supported calcareous breccia forming overhanging rock slabs.

Northern Sardinia (Italy) is characterized by a series of paleolandslides in different lithostratigraphic contexts of the Miocene succession. These large landslides have never been adequately studied and mapped and their kinematic processes are still insuffi ciently known. This study contains a description of the deposits of a paleolandslide in the Peru area (Castelsardo, North Sardinia). The surveying and mapping of its lithological and morphological characteristics were performed using in-the-field survey
