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...

La geologia delle aree urbane costituisce un tema di particolare attenzione per la cartografia geologica poiché, per ricostruire l’assetto superficiale e profondo di un territorio sottratto all’osservazione diretta dall’urbanizzazione è necessario il reperimento di dati da sondaggi, pozzi e indagini geofisiche. Le informazioni sulle caratteristiche...

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...

... Conservation designations for both the natural and built environment are common at a range of legacy waste sites and have been detailed for former mine workings in particular (e.g. Crane et al., 2017;Lucarini et al., 2020). Some authorities have made progress in incorporating such issues into management planning at legacy waste sites (e.g. ...
... I principali obiettivi della ricerca sono stati la sperimentazione di metodologie per il rilevamento e la rappresentazione cartografica, la realizzazione di studi comparativi in aree campione nel territorio di entrambi i Paesi e la condivisione di linee guida operative. La definizione delle similitudini e differenze delle rispettive linee guida nazionali cinesi ed italiane è stato il punto di partenza delle suddette attività (Wu et al. 2016;Wu et al. 2018). ...
... 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. ...
... Climatic characteristics follow the Mediterranean pattern, with mild and moist winters and hot summers. A recent study [48] based on thermo-pluviometric data from 40 meteorological stations for the period from 1984-2014 revealed an average precipitation of 793 mm/year in the urban area with a trend of increasing precipitation in winter followed by a strong decrement in spring and stability in summer. As far as temperatures are concerned, isotherms define a decreasing trend linked to the topography while high values are clearly found in the city centre, due to anthropogenic impacts [48]. ...
... 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. ...
... In accordance with recent Italian and international cartographical guidelines (Martarelli & Scalise, 2011;Tarragoni et al., 2011;Teixeira et al., 2013) and papers (De Luca et al., 2020;Pantaleone et al., 2018;Lucianetti et al., 2019;Lancia et al., 2020) here we present the groundwater map in a significant hard-rock aquifer, considering research about the local water circulation in a fractured rock mass. ...
... Riguardo gli studi idrogeologici, tali analisi sono basilari ai fini della valutazione quantitativa della risorsa idrica e indispensabili per l'elaborazione del bilancio idrogeologico. In occasione della pubblicazione della Carta Idrogeologica di Roma (La Vigna e Mazza, eds., 2015) sono state eseguite diverse elaborazioni numeriche e spaziali dei dati termo-pluviometrici (Conte et al. 2015) degli ultimi 20 anni relativi a 26 stazioni della rete termo-pluviografica della Regione Lazio, di cui 26 pluviometriche e 10 termometriche (Regione Lazio – U.I.M. 2015). I dati pluviometrici e termometrici costituiscono parametri di ingresso fondamentali per la definizione della ricarica delle falde acquifere e per valutazioni idrologiche. ...
... In fact, the clay bedrock, corresponding to the top of the basal aquiclude (TSBA) in the Rome district (Dimasi et al. 2015), in the study area rises up to 25 meters a.s.l., with NW-SE direction. This hydrogeological horst according to Authors (La Vigna et al. 2015;Mastrorillo and Mazza 2015;Mastrorillo and Petitta 2010;Bucci and Grillini 2001) marked the northeastern limit of the hydrogeological basin of Castelporziano, separating the groundwater flow of the Estate, that flow towards the Thyrrenian sea, from the external one of Alban Hills. According to this hydrogeological framework, the Castelporziano aquifer is hydraulically isolated from the adjacent volcanic aquifer due to the presence of the "Malafede ditch", that partially drains the hydrogeological basin of the Alban Hills Unit . ...
... The geo-database built up to realize the map encompasses different shapefiles. It will be integrated in a specifically built GIS, whose architecture is being tested (Martarelli et al. 2015). ...
