Article
Full-text available
Due to the semi-enclosed nature of the Mediterranean Sea, natural disasters and anthropogenic activities impose stronger pressures on its coastal ecosystems than in any other sea of the world. With the aim of responding adequately to science priorities and societal challenges, littoral waters must be effectively monitored with high-frequency radar...
Article
Full-text available
The Mediterranean Sea is a prominent climatechange hot spot, with many socioeconomically vital coastal areas being the most vulnerable targets for maritime safety, diverse met-ocean hazards and marine pollution. Providing an unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution at wide coastal areas, high-frequency radars (HFRs) have been steadily gaining...

Article
A native nested configuration of the ROMS model is implemented on the marine area between the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian basins, which includes the Tuscany Archipelago. Initial and boundary conditions are provided by the CMEMS Mediterranean Sea Physical Reanalysis product (1/16°), feeding the parent ROMS model (BLUE, 1/72°), in which a high-resolution...
Article
Full-text available
Lateral edge erosion is one of the main mechanisms leading to loss volume of salt marshes. Given the relatively large number of field measurements of eroding salt marshes reported in literature and the different ways they were performed, some natural questions arise. (i) What is the relationship between wave climate and erosion rate at different ti...

Article
Full-text available
A 29-year wind/wave hindcast is produced over the Mediterranean Sea for the period 1990–2018. The dataset is obtained by downscaling the ERA5 global atmospheric reanalyses, which provide the initial and boundary conditions for a numerical chain based on limited-area weather and wave models: the BOLAM, MOLOCH and WaveWatch III (WW3) models. In the W...
Article
Full-text available
The North American crayfish Procam-barus clarkii is considered among the most invasive freshwater species. However, burrowing behaviour and the possible impact of P. clarkii on levees have not yet been studied in depth. To assess shape, volume and structure of its burrows and the associated behaviour, experiments were conducted introducing two size...
Article
The study describes an improvement of the 1D version of the hydro-morphodynamic model XBeach to simulate the erosion of saltmarsh edges under wave attack. The effects of sand-mud mixture and characteristics of vegetation on the erosive processes are implemented, along with a nonlinear version of the Exner equation to better simulate the horizontal...
Article
Full-text available
Deterioration of salt marshes may be due to several factors related to increased anthropic pressure, sea level rise and erosive processes. While salt marshes can reach equilibrium in the vertical direction, adapting to sea level rise, they are inherently unstable in the horizontal direction. Marsh boundaries are characterized by scarps with bare se...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
A field monitoring campaign is carried out in the Lagoon of Venice (Italy) in order to investigate the role of wave climate in the evolution of a retreating salt marsh. Erosion data were systematically collected by means of erosion pins located horizontally along the marsh scarp for a time period of over one year. Pressure transducers were used to...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A process-based model for the lateral retreat of a cross-shore transect of salt marsh under wave attack is developed. Several modifications are implemented in the widely used numerical model XBeach: i) the processes involving the mutual interaction between sand and mud; ii) the effect of halophytic vegetation on modifying the near flow field and in...

BODY: Salt marshes are geomorphic structures located in ecotone environments such as lagoon and estuaries, providing lot of ecosystem services to local population. In the last decades they are disappearing due to several factors such as sea level rise, subsidence and edge erosion due to surface waves. The latter is likely the chief mechanism modeli...
Conference Paper

SOMMARIO Le barene sono strutture morfologiche presenti in ambienti di transizione "ecotoni", quali lagune ed estuari, caratterizzati da dinamiche complesse frutto dell'interazione tra idrodinamica, morfodinamica e biologia. Tali ambienti sono dotati di un'elevata biodiversità, alti tassi di produzione primaria e forniscono diversi e preziosi "serv...
Article
Salt marshes are delicate ecosystems which are disappearing in many areas of the world, mainly due to increasing rates of sea level rise, subsidence, and anthropic pressure. The lateral erosion of the edge of salt marshes is one of the most important processes in determining changes in morphology, and wind waves have a key role in this retreat. Lat...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Edge erosion of salt marshes due to surface waves and tide forcing is likely the chief mechanism that models marsh boundaries and by which salt marshes in worldwide coastal areas are being lost. In order to address this problem, experimental observations in a laboratory flume and field measurements in the lagoon of Venice were conducted to understa...

The main goal of this study is to investigate and quantify the effect of crayfish burrowing activity on river levees. We furthermore aim at understanding behavioural differences among sexes throughout this species annual phase of activity. As a result, we try to provide important information for scientists and managers dealing with the damage of crayfish burrowing activity. This research is part of the AQUAINVAD-ED International Training Network, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement.
