How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Palinsesti Programmati nell’Alto Adriatico? Decifrare, conservare, comunicare e pianificare il paesaggio collects the proceedings of a single-day workshop focused on the multidisciplinary study of the Northern Adriatic landscapes. The authors of contributions address the issue of Northern Adriatic landscape, perceived as a palimpsest resulting from...
Article
While recent landscape changes can be usually easily read through accessible morphological features, relatively ancient processes can be difficult to detect as the associated morphologies and deposits are often buried below younger sediments. With the aim of understanding the evolution of the distal Venetian-Friulian Plain (NE Italy) after the Last...
Article
During the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM, 30 to 16.5 ka ago), the Great Adriatic-Po Region (GAPR) was deeply affected by the spread of glaciers from the Alps to the southern foreland and by the dropping of the sea level to ~ -120 m amsl. The combination of these two events triggered the aggradation of the Great Po Plain (GPP), a vast flat area between...
Chapter
Between the second part of the sixth century and the seventh century, many regions of Europe have been characterized by dramatic changes in the hydrographic setting, probably related to a strong cooling phase. In northern Italy, the chronicle of a huge flood event referred by the Lombard historian Paul the Deacon to the autumn of 589 AD has achieve...
Article
Although the morphology and morphodynamics of modern tidal inlets have been analysed in a wealth of studies, these systems can be considered representative only for highstand conditions, while little is known about the characteristics and evolution of their transgressive counterparts. Through the analysis of high-resolution seismo-acoustic profiles...
Article
The northern Adriatic shelf is punctuated by the presence of several incised and filled features that have been revealed by the offshore seismic and stratigraphic surveys carried out in the last decades. In this study we analyzed an area located in the northern Adriatic shelf, 30 km offshore of the Venice Lagoon and between 29 and 34 m below the me...

Here we present some Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) produced from airborne laser altimetry in the distal sector of the Venetian-Friulian Plain. The research considered some areas where the high detail of the surface landforms allows to evidence the occurrence of some ancient anthropogenic features that normally are not detectable in the present la...
Article
Full-text available
In the last decades a series of offshore seismic and stratigraphic surveys revealed the presence of several infilled palaeo tidal inlets which punctuate the subsoil of the northern Adriatic shelf. The morphologic, morphometric and sedimentary characteristics of these landforms constitute remarkable database for the reconstruction of palaeo coastlin...

Project
NEPTUNE INQUA project aims to develop innovative techniques and procedures to analyse the past landscape evolution at a wider scale from near-shore locations to the continental shelf. This project fuels the discussion on this topic by creating a wide community of scientists dealing with all aspects of coastal landscape evolution, such as, for instance, geomorphological, climatic, structural and anthropogenic forcing. Our goal is to create a new scientific network that will discuss the most promising innovative techniques and procedures for submerged landscape reconstructions during workshops and common field activities. Neptune project started its activities online by organizing this first meeting but also by creating our online channels periodically updated with the Neptune news.
