We describe an optical approach based on Digital Holography for single-particle characterization of mineral dust and micrometric particles, focusing on the analysis of airborne particles in meltwater from Antarctic ice cores. We record the holograms formed by the superposition of the transilluminating reference beam and the waves scattered by singl...

The OPTICE project aims at studying the optical properties of airborne dust in snow and ice cores. The project is focused on determining the extinction and absorption cross sections of the solid particles. Dust can affect the snowpack reducing the albedo and it can lead the methamorphism and the formation of hoar crystals weak layers. For these rea...

In this work, calcareous nannofossils are identified for the first time in the uppermost Triassic sequence of the Lombardy Basin (Southern Calcareous Alps, Italy). Two zones are recognized, namely the NT2b (latest Triassic) and the NJT1 (earliest Jurassic). Two species resulted to be good markers to constrain the TJB interval: Prinsiosphaera triass...

Project
Determining and studying the optical properties of airborne dust in the snowpack and ice cores. Field activities are organized typically in spring or early summer in locations identified as key sites to investigate the dust properties in the snow in the Alps. The activity in laboratory consists of the preparation of the samples in cold rooms and the consequent analysis with the SPES instrument.
