Article
Landslides are recurrent phenomena in Italy, but little is known regarding the public perception of related risk. In order to investigate landslide risk perception of recent phenomena, we decided to perform a qualitative investigation in Frosinone (Lazio, Central Italy) where, during 2013, a relevant landslide (“Viaduct Biondi”) occurred. Survey re...

The Italian National Association of Science Teachers (ANISN) was established in 1979 and represents a corporation which aims at initial and long-life learning of High and Middle school teachers. One of the Association’s purposes is enhancing the role of Science among new generation. For this reason the ANISN organize a national competition among st...
Article
The Marsili volcano is the largest known seamount in Europe, located in the Marsili Basin (Aeolian Arc, Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy). The Marsili seamount shows a high probability to generate a volcanogenic tsunami in the near future, and the coasts of Southern Italy could be affected by this event. We conducted a qualitative risk perception analysis by...

Marine litter awareness hands-on actions through learning by doing (MALIA), is a project funded by Erasmus+ programme carried out in Portugal, Cyprus, Italy and Spain. It started in January 2018 and aims at including marine conservation practices and marine litter educational guidelines in the national school curriculum enhancing students and teach...

Teachers have an important role in helping students to choose the type of competition that suits their interests, goals and learning methods. Nowadays, there are several international competitions for high school students, focusing on different science topics. The International Earth Sciences Olympiad (IESO) is the youngest in the international sci...

The Italian National Association of Science Teachers (ANISN), established in 1979, aims to promote excellent performance in science among students. For this reason, annually the ANISN organizes a national competition for high school students. The 14th edition was held in 2016: 500 Italian schools took part in this contest. Within all them, 3000 stu...

Social networks enable anyone to publish potentially boundless amounts of information. However, such information is also highly prone to creating and/or diffusing mistakes and misunderstandings in scientific issues. In 2013 we produced a website (www.sunability.unina2.it) reporting on some research outputs from the University of Campania Luigi Vanv...

Risk perception is the judgment that people make about the characteristics and severity of risks. In the last few years risk perception studies focused on providing cognitive elements to communication responsible experts in order to design citizenship informations and appropriate strategies. Several authors used questionnaires as a tool for providi...

The Marsili volcano is the largest and active seamount in Europe, located in the Marsili Basin back-arc basin (Aeolian Arc, Italy). Its flanks are unstables and a large collapse could originate a disastrous tsunami that will strike the tyrrhenian coasts of Southern Italy. In this work we used a GIS methodology in order to calculate the tsunami trav...

Public dissemination of science is often negatively affected by biased, incorrect information distributed over the internet through social networks and blogs. In Italy, the lack of correct scientific information has generated several important issues, raising concerns by the international scientific community in several occasions over the past five...

Il Basso Monferrato (TO) presenta litologie gessose di età Messiniana interessate da fenomeni carsici uti-lizzate per attività estrattive, insieme questi due fattori, ren-dono l'area predisposta all'apertura di sinkhole. Nel febbraio 2005, in località Moncalvo (Asti), a seguito di un fenomeno di inrush in una galleria di una cava di gesso, si è gen...

I risultati delle ricerche in campo ambientale raggiungono il grande pubblico principalmente attraverso i mass media, che usano spesso un approccio superficiale. D’altra parte le riviste specializzate "peer reviewed" utilizzano un linguaggio incomprensibile ai non addetti ai lavori. La rete internet offre l’opportunità di divulgare dati scientifici...
Article
Fluidization of pyroclastic solids has long been indicated as one key to explain the enhanced mobility of dense pyroclastic gravity currents and their associated hazard. However there is a lack of characterization of the actual pattern and extent of fluidization establishing in real pyroclastic flows and some authors still raise arguments about the...

The fast motion of gravity currents of group A granular solids is studiedwith a focus on the dynamical structure of the frontal zone. The frontal zoneof the current is “immobilized” and observed in a fixed frame of reference byletting the current flow inside a rotary drum, big enough to make curvatureeffects negligible. The establishment of a variety...
Thesis
Full-text available
Pyroclastic flows are fluidized mixtures of solid particles and gases, which move rapidly subject to gravity. Upflow of gas across the flow is a common feature of a pyroclastic density current. The ascent velocity of the gas across the current may be so large to establish a fluidized state in the granular phase. For this reason, the definition of t...
Article
Pyroclastic flows have been frequently addressed in the recent volcanological literature as far as the depositional mechanisms and the field features of the related deposits are concerned. Much less attention has been paid to phenomena that control the dynamic of pyroclastic flow motion. The peculiar feature of pyroclastic flows, hence focused, is...
