Introduction
Dr. Stefano Fabbri is PhD in environmental sciences - coastal systems. He focuses his experience (and publications) in Remote Sensing data acquiring (UAV, TLS, GNSS, satellite images), elaboration and analysis in G.I.S. environment; He worked mostly on dune/beach systems, dealing with their erosion and methods to quantify and prevent it. At the Department of Physics and Earth Sciences, he lectures in the "G.I.S. and Remote Sensing applications to territorial cartography" course.

Article
Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) is increasingly used in geomorphology for the study of medium- to small scale landforms. A light weight, compact and portable TLS device has been used in the Grotta A Cave (Mt. Lessini, N Italy) to make a detailed 3D model of the underground environment. A total of 16 scans were used to survey the about 150 m long c...

The availability of high-resolution Digital Surface Models of coastal environments is of increasing interest for scientists involved in the study of the coastal system processes. Among the range of terrestrial and aerial methods available to produce such a dataset, this study tests the utility of the Structure from Motion (SfM) approach to low-alti...

Coastal dunes play an important role in protecting the coastline. Unfortunately, in the last decades dunes have been removed or damaged by human activities. In the Emilia- Romagna region significant residual dune systems are found only along Ravenna and Ferrara coasts. In this context, the RIGED-RA project "Restoration and management of coastal dun...

The knowledge of the shoreface morphodynamic zonation is essential for coastal zone management, to support a large set of planning decisions and in the field of engineering. To have a real knowledge of the shoreface and its evolution, repeated bathymetric surveys on the same zone for several years should be done in order to quantify the sea bottom...
Conference Paper

Coastal cliff erosion process is the result of the interplay of many drivers: subaerial, marine or endogenic, including rock control in terms of both lithology and structure. Today, the proper quantitative characterization of such a complex process still represents a scientific challenge, despite its importance for hazard and risk assessments, and...
Article

Nowadays, the employment of high-resolution Digital Surface Models (DSMs) and RGB orthophotos has become fundamental in coastal system studies. This work aims to explore the potentiality of low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) surveys to monitor the geomorphic and vegetation state of coastal sand dunes by means of high-resolution (2-4 cm) RGB ort...
Article
Full-text available
This work capitalises on the morphodynamic study of a scraped artificial dune built on the sandy beach of Porto Garibaldi (Comacchio, Italy) as a barrier to protect the touristic facilities from sea storms during the winter season and contributes to understanding of the role of elevation data uncertainty and uniform thresholds for change detection...
Article
Roman-period extractive sites in gypsum outcrops are very rare, and most have become very degraded by later weathering or quarrying activities. This paper describes, using laser scanning, photogrammetry and survey using a UAV-based survey, the uniquely well-preserved Roman-period gypsum quarry of Ca’ Castellina (Northern Apennines, Italy). This sit...
Article
observations using terrestrial laser scanning and 3D photogrammetry in a gypsum cave Abstract Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) and 3D photogrammetry techniques were used in a relatively small (100-m-long) cave developed in Messinian gypsum in Emilia-Romagna (N. Italy). The surveys were carried out to compare the results obtained by both methods in...

Freshwater ecosystems are essential for human needs and wildlife. Human activities are the main cause of water quality degradation and freshwater habitats loss which in turn affect biodiversity reduction. Other factors related to this decline are the increasing presence of alien species and abundance of plastics in aquatic systems. With this in min...

Cave exploration is feasible by only a minimal number of well-trained geologists. However, underground environments can be considered as excellent natural laboratories for the study of multiple disciplines among the Earth Sciences, such as geomorphology, minero-petrography, geochemistry, palaeoclimate, tectonics, meteorology, geomicrobiology, seism...
Conference Paper

This work develops a methodology borrowed from terrestrial photogrammetry applicable by citizens to environmental monitoring of small areas for conservation purposes. The advantage of this technique is the generation of a 3D digital reconstruction of the surrounding environment acquiring photos via smartphone equipped with selfie-stick and processe...
Article
Along the North Adriatic Sea coast (Italy), vulnerability to climate change is further aggravated by anthropogenic influences, such as strong subsidence rate due to deep groundwater and gas abstraction, tourism and industry impacts. In this context, conservation and restoration of coastal sand dunes become extremely important especially because of...
Article
Coastal monitoring is fundamental to studying dune and beach behaviour related to natural and anthropogenic factors as well as coastal management programs. Various tools have been used in recent years for such investigations, including LIDAR, satellite images, terrestrial laser scanning, and photogrammetry, allowing for both qualitative and quantit...

Project
Revisione, completamento e validazione della Cartografia Dune, nell'ambito della Direttiva 2007/60/CE sulla valutazione e gestione dei rischi di alluvioni e del PGRA della Regione Emilia Romagna per garantire e migliorare l'efficacia del sistema spiaggia/duna quale elemento di attenuazione del fenomeno di mareggiata. Parte del "Piano di adattamento della costa ai cambiamenti climatici" della Regione Emilia Romagna. In collaborazione con la REGIONE EMILIA ROMAGNA e l'Autorità di bacino distrettuale del fiume Po (AiPO)
Project
Caves are the ideal places for the conservation of archaeological and paleontological findings or to carry out geological and structural studies. 3D scanning techniques allow to acquire data that can be very useful for scientific analysis as also to create virtual reconstructions for dissemination purposes. The goal of this project is to collect works made in these areas
