Images collected by optical and radar satellite sensors represent a most viable solution for the extraction of biophysical parameters of the earth surface. The mid-resolution dataset acquired by Landsat and Sentinel satellites have recently become available free of charge for all users. At the same time, some software for image processing and GIS,...

This paper discusses some methodological aspects for the production of susceptibili-ty maps of slope instability developed within the CARG Project (Geological Carto-graphy of Italy at 1:50,000 scale). It describesan example of a susceptibility map in the presence of low susceptibility, using database having zero or negligible cost, with the aim to...

La valutazione e la mappatura della propensione al dissesto costituisce un obiettivo necessario al miglioramento della sicurezza di persone e dei vari elementi antropici che compongono la realtà territoriale. L’espansione di attività economiche e di insediamenti residenziali che prevedono significativi investimenti necessitano di strumenti di valut...

I dati censuari a livello di sezione consentono di comprendere alcune caratteristiche essenziali dell'edificato residenziale, in particolare, in un paese dove la quota di edifici demoliti e ricostruiti è pressoché nulla, la variabile epoca di costruzione riesce a fornire una dimensione dell'espansione urbana. Grazie a questa informazione si può sin...

The House Numbers Survey (2010), allows us to evaluate the seismic vulnerability of each georeferenced building. Previous researches had used the census data about housing to evaluate the seismic risk at the municipal scale, showing the need of a detailed knowledge of the buildings characteristics at the maximum geographic resolution (point level)...

Il Servizio Geologico d'Italia di ISPRA prosegue con questo lavoro uno studio in corso da tempo sui dissesti del territorio di Roma Capitale. Nella prima parte vengono proposte alcune statistiche sulla distribuzione dei fenomeni franosi, aggiornate e affinate rispetto alla prima pubblicazione (AMANTI et alii, 2008). L'aggiornamento ha riguardato l'...

The aim of this work is to carry out knowledge tools concerning the positioning of the morphological, geological and environmental features about quarries in the national country. It was developed a census form characterized by an easy input and complete scientific information database. The application of this form has been realized through the dra...

This paper describes the results of a rockfall hazard assessment for the village of San Quirico (Abruzzo region, Italy) based on an engineering-geological model. After the collection of geological, geomechanical, and geomorphological data, the rockfall hazard assessment was performed based on two separate approaches: i) simulation of detachment of...

The realization of the national geologic cartography and the management of the pertinent database is one of the main institutional activities of the Geological Survey of Italy. The geologic and geothematic cartographic production of the Geological Survey range from 1:50,000 scale of the national geologic cartography (CARG project) until the regiona...

In some plain areas of Italy piping sinkhole phenomena are still less known and studied. On the basis of the recent researches these landforms primarily occur in alluvial plains, in the immediate vicinity of carbonate ridges or in complex geological-structural and hydrogeological scenarios, and are originated by piping phenomena. Piping sinkholes c...

On the basis of the recent researches catastrophic subsidences occur in Abruzzi region (Italy) plain areas and are primarily concentrated in intermountain basins or alluvial plains in the immediate vicinity of carbonate ridges. Sinkholes verified in complex geological-structural and hydrogeological scenarios and some of their can be originated by p...

Il comprensorio irpino, una delle aree di più antico insediamento, coltivazione, studio e diffusione della vite, è un territorio di estremo interesse per la vitivinicoltura nazionale caratterizzato, come è, da una produzione di pregio, tra le più importanti nel mondo, che s’identifica in tre DOCG: Taurasi, Greco di Tufo e Fiano di Avellino. Di quel...

A geodatabase of natural sinkhole phenomena in plain area of Italy was realized: 850 sinkholes are censed. A Geographical Information System (GIS) was used to manage data of sinkholes occurred in plain area. The GIS was also used to create thematic maps and for further spatial analyses. The integration of the different layers in a layout produces r...

Anche i centri urbani, in quanto elemento fisico del territorio, non si sottraggono ai processsi di evoluzione geomorfo-logica con i quali sempre più frequentemente interagiscono in conseguenza della loro espansione, anche se tale interazione può espli-carsi con meccanismi del tutto peculiari. Appare fondamentale, ai fini di qualsiasi analisi e de...
