Located at an altitude of about 1950 m a.s.l. in a glacial cirque of Mount Vettore (Monti Sibillini National Park - Central Italy), Pilato Lake is one of the few glacial lakes existing in the Apennines. Due to the endemic presence of the crustaceous Chirocephalus marchesonii, the Pilato Lake was in the past mainly studied from the biological viewpo...

Il Servizio Geologico d’Italia di ISPRA, in qualità di Organo Cartografico dello Stato e quindi depositario di una notevole mole di informazioni geologiche territoriali, organizzate anche in banche dati, cura la produzione di varia cartografia geologica e geotematica, in buona parte consultabile on-line dal Portale del Servizio Geologico (http://sg...
Article
The Pilato Lake has glacial origin, is located in the Sibillini Mountains, Central Italy, and is characterized by the endemism of the small crustaceous Chirocephalus marchesonii. In the context of a research agreement with the Monti Sibillini National Park, the ISPRA Geological Survey of Italy is carrying on some studies aimed to evaluate the suppo...

Da oltre un decennio è in atto una collaborazione istituzionale tra il Servizio Geologico d’Italia di ISPRA e Roma Capitale. Questa collaborazione è finalizzata alla conoscenza e valutazione dei dissesti idrogeologici ed alla pianificazione degli interventi della loro messa in sicurezza che possano ridurre i potenziali impatti sul territorio [...].

The Geological Survey of Italy, Italian National Institute for Environmental Protection and Research is realizing the Sheet N.348 Antrodoco (Central Italy) of the Hydrogeological map of Italy as a cartographical test of the Italian hydrogeological survey and mapping guidelines, in the frame of the Italian Geological Cartography Project. The study a...

This paper describes the contents of the new Hydrogeological Map of the City of Rome (1:50,000 scale). The map extends to the entire municipality (1285 km2) and is based on both the most recent scientific studies on the groundwater field and new survey activities carried out in order to fill the data gaps in several areas of the examined territory....

Groundwater knowledge and mapping wide urban areas is always a challenge for hydrogeologists, because of many interactions occurring between natural processes and anthropic activities, and also the complexity of survey. This is especially complicated in the case of complex hydrogeological setting as in the case of Rome.Rome is located in a extensio...

This work is aimed to the hydrostructural characterisation of a portion of the Monte di Cambio aquifer system (eastern Reatini Mountains) and the hydrodynamic study of perennial suspended springs for which time series data on discharge are available. The outcropping lithotypes belong to the Umbro-Marchigiano-Sabina Succession (pelagic basin sedimen...
Conference Paper

The study area, located in the eastern sector of the Reatini Mts, hosts a significant number of perennial suspended springs. The aim of this work is the hydrostructural characterization of a part of the aquiferous system of Monte Cambio and the hydrodynamic study of the longterm discharge information of the Cavalli Spring. The cropping out lithotyp...

... In the past, hydrogeological maps were generally made for regional water management aims at large scale (Boni et al., 1986a;1986b;1986c;Celico, 1978;Celico, 1983). On the contrary, in the recent decades, a series of detailed hydrogeological maps at scale 1:50,000 have been realized in order to detect the local relationships between surface water and groundwater, mainly in porous and karst media (Amanti et al., 2016). Research on aquifers in fractured rock masses is less frequent, probably due to the general lack of interest in groundwater circulation. ...
... Measuring campaigns demonstrate that the aquifers hosted in the complexes of the base sands and gravels (complexes 4b and 4d) present a very similar static level, despite being located at clearly different depths. In some cases, the level of the base gravels (at a depth of approximately 50 m below the ground [37,43]) surpasses the level of the more superficial sandy aquifer by roughly 50 cm: therefore, in this area the two complexes show a diverse piezometric head level. In the areas in which complexes 4b and 4d are in stratigraphic contact, the piezometric levels are assimilable. ...
... Each section was divided in samples 100 m long, and for each sample, the average velocity (mm/year) with the internal PSI was calculated. In addition, by means of the hydrogeological map of Rome (La Vigna et al., 2015), it was possible to relate the subsidence to the soil type and use some rainfall data in certain areas. The intention of applying Sentinel-1 data was to obtain an overview of the displacements observed along the infrastructure network and to analyze the performance of Sentinel-1 data in three areas showing major subsidence, one of which was also investigated by using Cosmo-SkyMed to deepen the analysis. ...
... The loading factor of Mg 2+ represents the processes related to the dissolution of the dolomites and dolomitic limestones. Moreover, in the carbonate environments, in the presence of the arenaceous and marly flysch deposits, the effect of water-flysch interactions acts as the dissolution mechanisms of the silicates involving the release of detectable quantity of Ca 2+ , HCO 3 -, Mg 2+ , K + , Na + , and H 4 SiO 4 [56,57]. The factor scores of K + and NO 3 -, characterized by very low concentrations, do not have any discernible pattern, and the nitrate ion has no significant lithologic source; the correlation degree suggest that it may be associated mainly with zootechnical activity or surface runoff of fertilizer used for agricultural purposes. ...
